- I've been with Telecom/Xtra broadband since around February this year
- I'm in Half Moon Bay Auckland and apparently a long way from the Howick exchange (5+ kms)
- because of that, was intially told by Telecom that they couldnt supply me with ADSL
- I've had my house wired with a dedicated ADSL line
- previously speeds have been "ok" given the above details

I read today on another forum that Telecom had turned off the interleaving settings for my plan.
I rebooted my modem/router and have noticed the connection type as showing different.

I am concerned though with all the errors that are showing up:
eg. (copy/pasted from my router)

  Configured Current
Line Status ---SHOWTIME
Link Type ---Fast Path
Data Rate
Stream Type Actual Data Rate
Up Stream 725 (Kbps.)
Down Stream 2438 (Kbps.)
Operation Data
Operation Data Upstream Downstream
Noise Margin 12 dB 12 dB
Attenuation 78 dB 59 dB

Defect Indication
Indicator Name Near End Indicator Far End Indicator
Fast Path FEC Correction 0 0
Interleaved Path FEC Correction 279 24806
Fast Path CRC Error 0 0
Interleaved Path CRC Error 9 110
Loss of Signal Defect 0 ---
Fast Path HEC Error 0 0
Interleaved Path HEC Error 15 0

Do these errors seem to indicate a problem?
Or it is just down to the long distance I'm from the exchange?

I'm on a VPN to London everyday. would it be better if I asked to have interleaving turned back on?

You can opt to have the interleaving turned back on, but for most customers this should not be a problem.

You can do this via 0800 JET XTRA or try visting your local Telecom Store (Botany?).
