So 2degrees sent me out a fritzbox 7490, which required the use if multiple cables and a adapter to it connect to my phoneline and was quite messy. Where as my HG659b connected with one cable. Also my upload was always slow. So I decided to replace my jack point with a cat5e jackpoint so I could use a normal patch cable to connect to the fritzbox.

 

Anyways while connecting phoneline to the cat5e socket I picked that 568b layout and 568b patch cable to the fritzbox is this the correct way? Or does this affect my speeds?

The line is working fine except my upload seems a liitle slow at 26509 kbit/s. There are no other lines connected in the house, there is no master filter installed just naked vdsl to this one jackpoint the old 1950s phoneline cable has been replaced with a cat5e cable.

 

I get the following line stats after my messing about.

Is there anyway I can get the 120000 kbit/s the fritzbox says or improve upload speed ?

Those stats are as good as you will get - you are getting the maximum sync rate for the DSLAM already.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "a little slow". The maximum sync speed of your VDSL2 linecard is 70/30 and you're basically getting that. Your VDSL2 connection as perfect as possible, and better than probably 99% of other VDSL2 users.

 

The 120000kbps mentioned is a download rate (not upload) and isn't possible because the maximum speed of the linecard is 70000 as mentioned above.

Oh I thought the upload could match the download like fibre can. So the linecard thing do I ask the chorus guy for a better one to be installed? Fibre is still a way off from here

VDSL2 is asymmetrical so no upload and download aren't the same.

 

No you can't ask Chorus to install another card. You have a connection that's absolutely perfect and delivering at the limit of what the technology can offer. There are a mix of Ikanos and Broadcom cards and the other can offer up too 100/50 but no they're not going to change a card for you, and it's unlikely that'd you'd see faster speeds than you're seeing right now.\

 

If your requirements are beyond what VDSL2 can offer I suggest you look for alternatives such as licenced or non licenced wireless connections or HSNS fibre. Just be prepared to pay significantly more for such an offering. Every other VDSL2 user in NZ would absolutely love to have a connection as perfect as yours!

@sbiddle has hit the nail on head here, your stats are essentially perfect. @TimA would have been jealous.

Thanks all, So replacing the old wires and jackpoints was worth it and will leave it at that. I was just getting mislead by wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VDSL_and_VDSL2_deployments thinking I could get the 50Mbit/s Upstream. But sbiddle said they wont put in that linecard for 1 residential customer.

That Wikipedia information is slightly out of date as it says in NZ upload is limited to 10Mbps. This hasn't been the case since late 2015 when the band profile was moved from 997 to 998. There are some ISAM cards that do 100/50 and if you asked nicely and gave Chorus somewhere in the vicinity of $10,000 I'm sure they'll happily swap it for you. As I pointed out even if you were connected to one of these cards there is absolutely no guarantee at all you would get speeds any faster as you are fractionally below the 30000kbps maximum sync rate if you current card.
