I have a Spark VDSL connection to the Albury exchange. My speeds are poor compared to my neighbour opposite. Chorus have previously advised that the line comes directly to us (and them) from the exchange and there's no looping etc.

 

I've had a master splitter installed. About 10 days ago I upgraded the modem firmware (Vigor 130) to a version that supports vectoring and have seen no change in speed.

 

I'm wondering:

 

- is there a way to check if Vectoring is supported at the exchange, and

 

- is there a way of checking via the modem interface that vectoring is active.

 

 

 

Just trying to get the best out of the connection (only copper available - RBI due in June but no use to me because of the data limits).

 

Appreciate all the helpful advice which is always forthcoming from the good folk on this wonderful forum.

Yes vectoring is supported at the exchange (ABY) Found here.

 

Take a look at this map and make sure you are not connected to ABY/A as it is a conklin, however it is very unlikely.

 

You can also check what exchange/cabinet you are on for sure here, just click on the menu up the top right corner and click availability checker under products :)

That would suck :)

Thank you! This is from the Chorus product checker page - can't see the exchange info or am I missing something.

Kinda sounds like your exchange fed, I which would mean no vectoring.

Vectoring doesn't always mean a speed jump remember too

Can you DM me your address and ill check a few things

 

Bigger exchanges do not support vectoring (ones with more than one ISAM) but some smaller rural ones do, as there a single ISAM with no UCLL and not a UFB1/UFB2 planned.

@Chrisclarke -

 

There is a new version of DV130 firmware which supports vectoring and G.INP. Look for 3.8.4.1m9

Thanks Michael. Uploaded that firmware this afternoon and got an immediate boost of about 4/5 Mbps down.

 

Still very slow compared to the folks over the road so will think about getting Spark to ask Chorus to try a different pair.

If your line is within spec it's unlikely they will do anything. Chorus charges the ISP if there is no fault found.
