Hey all


Am pretty new to VDSL technology, let me provide a screenshot of my modem stats

https://i.imgur.com/NRObcyS.jpg


Notice at the top it mentions 997? I know that my connection is directly to the exchange building down the street (Bryce Street, Whitianga), so i would have presumed they have 998 available there?

The line runs about 200-250m before hitting the exchange i believe.

Thanks in advance

That's your modems fault.

 

 

 

It's 998, Check the actual spectrum itself. 

 

Your linecard is ikanos, 70/30 maximums there.

 

 

 

 

 

SNR is currently running a little high, Probably related to the large upstream errors there.

 

Check you don't have a powercable alongside the dsl line as RFI tends to look like that.

Thanks for the advice, I will re-wire it tomorrow and see how it goes.

 

Is there any reason that my area is still on an Ikanos? We don't have fibre planned until August 2020

1. Your exchange fed, This can't be vectored so there is no point in upgrading the card

 

2. Your in a chorus Fibre area, Chorus aren't allowed to vector these... so there is no point in upgrading the card.

That's disappointing. I'm actually curious why exchanges cant be vectored?

Multiple dslams are in exchanges generally..

 

that ontop of UCLL and the massive pair counts..

 

 

 

Overall it simply isn't feasible (Yeah if you research it it's possible but i suspect there is a massive price tag with that...)
