The information on the page (I always thought) is an estimate of what is available.
You are referring to www.chorus.co.nz/sat, right?

I was always under the assumption that the yellow (1-5mbit) area on the maps were conklins if they dont border a pink area which would indicate the distance factor.

hotrok: now i am going mad i mean you read left to right......!!!!


My point is still valid however. It "should" be less than 5mbit so Chorus don't know how to maths.

I agree it should read that from the Chorus website but I really think they mean greater than as yes its possible in those zones to have more than 1mb/5mb/20mb but cabinet/exchange dependant

I am fairly certain that the map polygons indicate estimated downstream sync rate. For xDSL there is
>20 (VDSL)
>10 (ADSL2+ with reasonable line length)
>5 (ADSL1 or very long line)
>1 (it's still way more than dial up!)

The maps do not reference what backhaul there is, or what hardware is delivering the connection, so for some areas on older hardware (Conklins etc.) you cannot saturate your downstream sync rate.

I think what the OP is getting at is it would be useful to either highlight areas where you cannot reasonably expect to saturate your downstream connection, or provide an estimate as to what throughput you might reasonably expect, rather than just the expect sync rate. Of course throughput is dependant on far more than just the sync rate and cabinet backhaul, so that's where it gets complicated.....

chorus maps tell me i'm in a "Broadband >10Mbps" area, but my max connection speed is around 7500Kbps.   I have 'perfect' internal wiring, and a splitter installed by coffeebaron.  the maps lie.

the question, however, is whether they are legally obliged to provide/meet that claim.  If so, by when.

Wow hoomans of geekzone.
When did you not realize these maps are an INDICATIVE reading.
"serving as a sign or indication of something."

 

 

It clearly states to perform a qualification to determine your results effectively.

I have a master splitter installed by DarthKermit. I'm pretty happy with our ADSL2 speeds here.

Would a qualification have shown that the OP was crippled by local congestion?  The modem sync speed is as advertised on the map.

It would identify the estimated sync speeds. Chorus can also check for congestion on the prequal if asked.
So yes if specific about it congestion can be looked into.

Your quite accurate but that theory can only be held to assumption.

So unless you ask specifically then Chorus don't check for congestion.

That is not ideal but it is good to know if your ISP is switched on they will ask the right questions of Chorus.
