I was in my roof space over the weekend and I noticed that the cable from the demarcation point of my house first goes into my alarm and THEN into the master socket. (This was like this when we brought the house, I have only just noticed. The alarm is not monitored but is configured to call my cellphone when it goes off).
I have always had slow ADSL (1.2MB downstream but 800k+ up) and wondered if this could be related to the way the cabling is done?
I am unsure of my distance to the exchange, I am in Ranui and I think I am on a Massey exchange. ISP is Vodafone and I am scheduled to be part of the Red network this month.
