Just trying to figure it out, Noticed a few days ago my upload speed has jumped up to a consistent 510+ meg upload speed

 

when before it has always been 460meg give or take a few megs,  Did Chorus increase its Layer 2 speed for upload on the Gigabyte plan ?

 

Has anyone had a decent jump in upload speed in the Auckland area in the last 2 days ?

 

 

 

Thanks Mike

They put out a notice to their customers a few weeks ago saying the gigabit product will be increased to 550 up.

just remember the RSP's are chorus's customers, you are their customers

 

 

 

in terms of the service the ISP's offer, it is still 1000/500 you simply will get that full upstream now :)

Guessing by "customers" you mean Chorus' customers, i.e. the RSPs, not the end users?
So if your RSP chooses not to broadcast the information, or to bury it somewhere on their website, then you'd never know unless you're the kind of person [ like MikeK ;-) ] who monitors this kind of thing?

One of the better results I've had:

 

 

I suspect BigPipe may be limiting the plan to 1000/500Mbit on their BNG since I've never broken past 500Mbit upload (and this is testing on my Xeon workstation). @JoshBigpipe you able to confirm this theory? Not that is really matters...

I thought it those on gigabit were "unconstrained" already?

 

 

Where did they squeeze out that extra speed from, did they disable interleaving or something? :P

Can't provide exact details (not because of sensitivity so much as that my usual contact in our network team is having a well-deserved Friday beersie) but I don't think so. Pretty sure I've seen our Elite users crack 500 Mbps upload on occasion. I'll update if I hear different, though.

To do their prioritisation thing they would need to reserve some of the bandwidth wouldn't they?

 

 

(assuming you got that enabled)

I did get over 500 yesterday morning so the little buff in upload worked nice.

 

 

But this is the current one

There's a cap on the upload. It was 500 previously so you'd see somewhere around 430 on speedtests. They have now raised it to 550 so you will see 500 on speedtests.

 

Chorus has a 1Gbps/1Gbps fibre product that will get you 900+ on uploads, but it's quite a bit more expensive.

So it is just to account for overheads then (Chorus' "right performing")

 

 

I thought the cap was some limit on contention and statistical multiplexing when that begins to break down.

Yes, this is another "right preforming" situation.

 

 

 

In the chorus informer, they indicated the only reason the Downstream is not adjusted is simply because the physical Ethernet port on the ONT is already the limitation there.

Yes there was an informer sent about a week ago or something stating its layer2 speed upload is increasing to about 550mbit. To the average user it wont really make any difference to their online experience.
