Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

That's actual downstream or attainable downstream?

 

 

Actual downstream, the Fritz Box says

 

Max DSLAM: 130032/30000 kbps. Attainable: 124314/45861 kbps. Current Throughput of 124314/29999 kbps.

both are examples of this doing exactly what chorus planned it to do.

 

 

 

as noted a few pages back, the 30mbit was a compromise, chorus originally wanted it to be lower!

 

High download is a easy PR number as the non techys only care about that.

Wonder if DV130 shows 'Vectoring active' ?
Would be nice to know its doing it
Can't wait now till change over, my cabinet not due till 23rd will on 24th early morning

 

Bought a NF4V for playing with too, Trademe $1.50 bargain of century

 

Some nice downstream gains coming through, I'm rural so not expecting too much from Vectoring but anything is a good thing.
Upstream must be a bummer if you maxed out link before to drop 10Mbps

I have a DV130 and a 2760 I look after both due for the upgrade on the 22nd (different cabinets) so will be keeping a close eye on them.

i expect your line is going to have near no improvement, it's already impressive!

 

 

 

you lucky bugger though, i wish i had 1.50 NF4Vs! i try not to buy too many modems though... already have a massive box sitting in the corner overflowing.

NF4V paid for, postage was 6x price of Modem
Will make a good backup to DV130 should it die

 

I think most who frequent this particular section of GZ will have that box of gear collected over the years
I have several, with much disgust from the Mrs :)

Oh .. If I am interpreting this map correctly it looks bad for us. 

 

Red points = cabinets etc to get (or have got) vectoring?

 

We are rural but are serviced by a cabinet just within the urban area (RDB/M, which is 1.5 km cable distance from us). 

 

No red dot anywhere near the cabinet, or near us ...  frown

Your linecards getting switched to vector capable ones on the 23rd may.
Thus arent on this switch flicking list.

I'm unsure of the idea here. It may be they are deployed then flicked after a week or so (the chorus folk are monitoring afterall. Think their tool also needs history)

Is this a permanent change? Might as well drop chorus VDSL and switch on enables fibre now.

My Christmases would come at once to have the speed you are getting.

 

When I was in the Phillippines I would have been over the moon to have the speed I presently get here.

It's proportional though, that's the thing... 

 

 

 

If you give someone something, and then take it away, to many it's like ripping the money straight out of their hands.

 

I personally wouldn't have appreciated a drop of up to 20mbit in upload speed, but the general public would certainly appreciate their 80mbit line jumping to 120mbit.

 

 

 

Heck, they might not even upgrade to fibre if it's betting the baseline package!

Hi, from the look of the map you created our upgrade should happen this Thursday, 24/05/2018. I currently just have the Spark Huawei HG630b and have never upgraded the firmware.

 

I have VDSL and must be on the very limit as we are just under 2km's from the roadside cabinet. Getting 22Mbps download and just over 1.5Mbps upload. this was a big jump from the ADSL we previously had.

 

The info on here has been very interesting and I am hoping we will benefit but have a couple of questions

 

1. is the HG630b compatable with the vectoring and do i need to update the firmware?

 

2. at the distance we are from the cabinet can i realistically expect much of an increase in speeds?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

 

Chris
