damn this dslstats is cool.  i've been noticing that my max attainable speed goes up by a few megabits at night.  and this shows is quite clearly, from like 22:45 to 07:15 (or within about 15 minutes of that, more variation at night, less in morning, so maybe human started) my snr is clearly higher constantly.  it's sudden increase, sudden decrease and pretty flat other than that.  now to figure out what's causing that.  curiously snr margin never seems to drop but briefly around 2 pm it raised a bit.  so i figure it must be interference from something that's usually on but not at night?

i wonder how much difference it'll make when shifting onto 998.  maybe like 5 megabit?

Anybody had any issues since getting upgraded?  I got a call from a family member who's having issues, checked their connection, and sure enough the modem was showing sync of 65/29. But they're having intermittent issues with pages not loading.  I also did a speedtest on their connection (ethernet not wifi) and it only got 11 down and 10 up. Also the spark speedtest page wouldn't even load fully. They're gonna give spark helpdesk a call but I'm curious if anyone else has had similar issues?

FYI, they're in cockle bay. I'm still waiting for ours to be upgraded in balmoral\mt eden area :)

A chap from Chorus gave a presentation covering this (amongst other things) at Intac@NetHui.
I didn't manage to capture the slide, but he had a graph of tests on a few cabinets showing pretty much everyone gets a massive boost in bandwidth.
I think rolling it out was subject to some govt department to do with frequency regulation, but they are working on it.

Does anyone know what the rollout timetable for this is?





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

hi, a quesiton here.
I had previously requested VDSL but the Draytek 130 could not sync so I was cut back to ADSL.
If I ssh into my DV130 (which I'm running in bridge mode to a virtual router running vyos), I get the following stats;
Does the change to VDSL mean that there could be a possibility I could be cut over to vdsl (I'm in Torbay about 1.5kms from the exchange I believe)?
Fibre is something we only dream of in our street (Glamorgan Drive).

i would say you might be in with a chance but it all depends on what chorus think at the end of their testing.

no one could give you a definative answer at the moment.

its likely based off things chorus have said, that once the rollout is complete they will look to raise the distance for vdsl, however at the higher end of things you will only be seeing a marginal change in upstream, and a little bit on the downstream. In rural areas it would likely go further.

but until its officially set, nobody could tell you.
