alot of it comes down to what many of us have been saying, 17a is underused in nz..

Considering such profile is controlled by DLM... essentially DLM has been holding everyone back till now... :/

Yep exactly, and sure there are arguable reasons for it.

 

 

 

When you dig into the white papers there are points on power levels between 8b and 17a where depending on the coinflip you could be better off with more spectrum or more power..

 

Many of us techys are more into it for the upstream boost, and that's one of the biggest factors 17a vs 8b brings in given 998..

 

 

 

on the note of ADSL, i'm pretty closely following this one too, seeing some impressive results there too - Granted you can't squeeze much more out of it, but chorus are managing it quite nicely.

Interesting, i must be on one of the other trials. The line you did a comparison on a mirror image of mine (Same Attenuation, same SNR, Same line card, same modem) however I am getting 20mBit more on the downstream with 8b

 

 

what dslam/cabinet are you off?

 

 

 

Exchange area will do for a clear check

Not quite guys :)
Historically DLM could not manage the spectrum change between 8b/17a (and back again).  So This selection was based on loop (electrical) length only.
Also - don't forget 8b has higher power.

 

The new dd-DLM is able to manage the spectrum switch.

DLM hasn't been holding everyone back, a DLM upgrade has allowed us to change the way we do things in this space.

Is there a simple way to detect if your line has been updated to DLM?





Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

Looks like Vectoring is on the cards too - mentioned in this press release:

 

https://www.chorus.co.nz/chorus-submits-proposals-for-rural-broadband-initiative-and-mobile-black-spots-rfp 

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Interesting, missed this one.

 

 

 

was bought up in a topic here about DLM, where i mentioned chorus had put comment out about doing this but nothing since.

 

Good to see.

 

 

 

So far in my noticed areas, i haven't seen vectoring on any trial lines think i have only really looked at IKANOS lines though.

Quite possibly not trialled yet, but appears they intend to look at it I guess.

Vectoring has not been and is not enabled anywhere in our network yet.
