Just put a new router at my sisters place, its getting a 25dB noise margin on the downstream, and getting 7.6 megs or so, so I assume thats being limited by the old plan that they are on rather then anything else.

Is there a simple table that will say what speeds adsl2+ will give when available. We are already looking at changing plans, but orcon play the same game ihug do about a $10 charge for not taking calling and line rental to them, and the freedom is too much of a saver to move tolls and line off telecom.

Anyone know where the ellerslie exchange is for 579xxxx numbers? There about 400m away from the ellerslie town center.
