hamish225:Downhillnz: The reason Chorus like to have Cat5e/6 cable rewired to a new Jackpoint is for a few reasons.
If they decide they want to bump up the VDSL speeds higher ( AFAIK they are looking into it)
For fibre installs, ( They are looking to put in hybrid wire, two pair of Cat6 rated and two fibre)
Because its new cable....
The difference between having 10-20m of that old untwisted 2 pair and having cat6 is minimal. 200k downstream (I have compared with some installs for curiosity sake).
As long as there are no multiples on the pair that he used to get to the dedicated jp. It would be fine.
hmm, interesting that they are looking at bumping the speeds up.
would that mean an increase for everyone?
for example my line stats as reported by my modem are as follows;
would i get an increase or is this the best i can get?
I have installed a few connections with these kind of stats. The Errored Seconds aren't a good look.
I don't know how they are going to work with DLM on this. The connection looks close enough for a profile jump, but whether DLM will let it stay on that profile will be something else.
