Any visible timeframe for activation ?

 

 

Currently none. still only trials. @chorusnz may be able to advise more :)

 

 

 

 

 

To quote chorus.

Next Steps

 

We’re consulting with the industry, via the TCF, on the implementation of VDSL vectoring and G.INP. We’ve shared the results of the pilot on active VDSL lines in Ethernet DSLAMs, within a Christchurch non-fibre area.

 

While the pilot tests confirmed our expected improvements, we need to address the higher than expected number of incompatible modems before we roll out VDSL vectoring to all Ethernet DSLAMs in areas without our fibre. This number may simply be the percentage of older or non-standard modems in network, but we need to determine better methods of minimising end user impact. We are working with affected RSPs individually and at TCF on identifying in compatible modems before seeking approval to proceed with roll out. This should be done early next year.

 

 

'early next year', has since past, and obviously been revised...

In a move that I'm sure will be controversial Chorus are trialing capping the upstream speed of Vectored lines to 30Mbit in order to get higher downstream speeds. 

 

 

If I were on VDSL getting >30Mbps upload and it were lost in order for a potential gain in download speed I wouldn't be impressed. I'm probably not an average user in that regard though.

These power outages have been interesting.

 

 

 

had the chance to capture my connection in an outage situation.

 

getting a whole 9mbit faster, with upstream rates pegging out snr due to maxing US1!

 

 

 

 

 

Here is hoping vectoring atleast does half of that!

We are at the northern end of Auckland (rural, ~0.5 km north of urban area).  No effect of the outages here.

 

More disconcerting is that all the 'management' of the connection that seems to be happening seems to be making our connection worse, not better.  About 1.5km to cabinet.

 

As per table below, since Nov 17 we have been on 17a with our US connection recently dropping to ~1600 kbps vs the ~2800 rate we were commonly getting on 8b.  Even on 17a we have had up to ~2500 up

 

DS is also slower than on 8b and is also currently lower than it has been on 17a.  Yet our DS error rate is higher than it has normally been, especially over the last 11 days.

 

With one exception our US error rate is minimal - rarely more than 1 regardless of the time connected.

 

I tried to force the connection onto 8b a few months ago but it would not connect.  

 

Just getting back to our 8b speeds would be great!

That's to be expected for 8b to 17a performance tbh.

 

 

 

more of a ddDLM related issue rather than Vectoring.

Looks like the roll out is coming mid to late May, about 160,000 lines listed so far.

Still only premises that are not on the roadmap for UFB?

I have been watching the card replacement program in certain areas closely and there only doing cards servicing rural cabinets.

 

Some over lap so some people in UFB coverage may get lucky but in generally they have not been replacing the cards in Chorus UFB areas.

 

So it doesn't look like it

Bugger might pay to drop them a line, I asked them about a road in Cambridge and they ended up adding it 18 months later when a new subdivision in nearby.
