Hi,

 

 

 

I checked the Orcon, Spark and Vodafone address checker. 

 

My address can get ADSL and VDSL. 

 

DO you think it will improve my current ADSL speed if i switch to VDSL?

 

My ADSL Current line Rate:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks

your on the longer side of things, you might get 25/2 or so though assuming it goes through.

 

 

 

Your low downstream at that distance implies your line itself isnt too healthy.

My parents were marginal - they went from 4/0.6 to 17/1, so while not spectacular, it's made a massive difference to them.

Yeah, their internal wiring was pretty bad, hence the horrible ADSL speed. I believe the Chorus tech installed a master splitter when he put in VDSL - he ran a whole new line up the side of the house and through the attic.

You have a high downstream attenuation of 22.4dB. Your house wiring may be contributing to this.

 

If you want VDSL to work well you will need a VDSL master filter, which will improve your house wiring and xDSL performance.

Where i can find the master filter? is it provided by chorus when i apply for vdsl? Or i have to buy it separate and look for a tech to install the master filter.

 

 

 

Thanks

The master filter is / should be part of your fixed house wiring.

 

Unfortunately, not all ISPs install master filters routinely. They should.  wink

Step one is the hardest - run a new cat5e / cat6 cable from the ETP (white box in first picture) to where you want your modem outlet.

 

Once you've done that, it's a matter of crimping the right wires together - that's the easy bit.

You don't need to do this yourself.

 

Some ISPs provide a VDSL master filter and wiring "free" as part of a standard install. Do some market research.

 

Apart from knowledge, you will need some special tools and fittings, cable, and a new RJ45  socket, so the cost of do-it-yourself can rise rapidly.

Run the cable, then look at the next steps..

 

 

 

Many techs often cheat a little at that stage and run DSL on the orange pair in the two pair wire.

Depends on the cable whether or not this is a good idea. If there's a spare pair in good condition with no branches, it's worth a go...
