I'm loving my BigPipe VDSL speeds, quite close to my attainable speeds within the router's interface. Will post example's tonight.

gregmcc: I set up mine with 2talk, took a bit of tweaking of the default settings but overall it's working good

Signed up to Big Pipe and looking to get the Netcomm NF4V myself.
Any chance you could tell me what kind of download/upload speeds are you getting when connected via Lan and wireless N(5Ghz)?

Tested 5.15pm

wired 41ms, 18.18 down, 3.13 up

wifi 41ms, 11.51 down, 3.17 up


Those speeds don't sound especially awesome for VDSL.

Do you have an idea of what sorts of speeds your line is capable of?

It may be worth getting a master filter installed, if you haven't already, as interference from poor house wiring can often cause problems especially with VDSL.  Coffeebaron on geekzone can sort you out with one for a good price.

If it is within the first ten days of having VDSL, chorus run a process called DLM (Dynamic Line Management) which automatically adjusts your speed to the best it can - it often starts slow and gets faster over the first ten days, but you need to keep your router turned on and not reset it all the time.

If you have a master filter, and have passed the ten day DLM process, then it is probably worth submitting a trouble ticket on our site (with as much info as you can give) so we can do some line tests

FYI a requirment of VDSL is that a master filter install and dedicated VDSL outlet done by chorus, so yes there is a master filter installed, is is naked BB so no actual phone line any more.

I'm still in the 10 days of the DLM process, when the chorus guy was here he showed me the estimated line speed stats that were emailed to him, they were 18.7 down an 3.2 up these figures are based on the distance from the exchange, so my ADSL was about 10.1/down and 1.1 up.

I'm happy with what I'm getting as it's nearly twice as fast as what I used to get and it's costing me way less.

Oh and BTW i'm with Vodafone so I don't think submitting a trouble ticket with you would do me much good *grin*

sorry missed that bit earlier.  thanks for clarification.

Could some good soul post their connection settings for Big Pipe VDSL please? I've been clicking settings for 3 hours and I'm about to pull what's left of my hair out.

I keep getting a DSL config error when I go through setup. I've tried going through the different interfaces in advanced setup such as ATM and PTM etc (whatever the feck they are) and putting in the VCI, VPI settings etc but I've no clue what I'm at.

Any help much appreciated!
