Is there any list of areas or exchanges that have been upgraded. I've read most of the posts and it sounds like Howick, Bucklands Beach, Northland, Hamilton and parts of Christchurch.

There is a list but I don't think it's public domain... There are thousands of DSLAMs to upgrade and they are doing a few hundred per day so it will be weeks before it's complete.

I've gone from 0.5 to 30mbps in the last 3 months so I'm overall pretty happy, but now I have some speed I want more. I've got a taste for it and now see how faster internet can really benefit me and my plans to setup a business from home.

Rural Central Otago Vdsl on 998 , 

Approx 550m from cabinet , Copper is obviously showing its age with my attn 
Have gone from 33mb sync to 50mb sync 
Upload was 10 is still 10
attn was 16 to 17 pre now showing 19
Snr was 12 now showing 8

THis connection survived a reboot. 
Interesting that Power Mngt Mode on the modem still showing DSL_G997

Very Happy

not bad, i wouldnt expect much of a change in upstream on 998, good to see it stayed steady for you though!

33 to 50 is a decent jump!

So we got upgraded overnight, very impressive results.

SNR: Before = 12, after = 7
Attenuation: Before = 17, after = 19
Download: Before = 28.5, after = 47.1
Upload: Before = 10.4, after = 9.6

Pretty impressive for about 850m from exchange (according to Chorus)

isnt' bombay in india? :)

i expect the latency should go back to normal in a week's time after dlm is finished.  which may boost your speed to around 56 megabit or so too.. (ie hardly at all.. but especially decreased latency)

i wouldn't worry about attenuation, but if you don't get shifted to 17a you could find your snr goes up over time, and your upload decreases further. (that said they did kind of warn that upload speeds wouldn't be that great compared to download increases)

What determines 17a vs 8b?
