I got a speed boost a few months ago from around 30Mbps to mid 40's. This was in connection with well publicised band plan changes. Now I'm suddenly getting almost 52Mbps and I have no explanation. Does anyone know why?

 

I'm several hundred metres from the exchange in a rural "dot on the map" location so very happy :-) Thanks Chorus.

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 

  • you have reset your modem and router 
  • your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing - you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap 
  • your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing 
  • you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 

  • Your ISP and plan 
  • Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL) 
  • Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin) 
  • Your general location (or street) 
  • If you are rural or urban 
  • If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin 
  • If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service 
  • If you have done an isolation test as per the link above 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

That's what the timing would suggest but I thought there may have been another explanation due to how stable it has been for the last few months. In effect I was wondering if Chorus had implemented any other tweaks lately.

Chorus haven't made any significant changes in a number of months. So it's DLM doing the job it was designed to do.

a jump of 10mbit there, i would put down to a few things.

 

 

 

You just had a powercut, or some form of whole area outage and resynced while noise was low.

 

You have moved from a 12dB to an 9dB profile as DLM has decided your line is stable for it.

 

You have moved to 17a on a borderline 17a line (considering you do say your only a few hundred meters away this would be my pick.)

 

 

 

VDSL being a copper product can always be changing, enjoy the speed boost and hope it doesnt drop back!

My upload speed has barely changed from around 8Mbps. What could be the reason for this?

because on some lines some of the upload is sacrificed to give you a better download
