I've just switched to naked DSL from normal DSL and since the switch I am getting very slow speeds, with the upload speed actually being a bit faster that the download speed... 


Using http://www.consumerspeedtest.org.nz/ I'm getting around .39 Mbps up and .64 Mbps down. 


With my pervious connection I got normal NZ speeds....


here is what my modem is reporting about the connection:

Max. DSLAM data rate

Any ideas?


Thanks.

your stats look ok are you on adsl or adsl 2+? looking from your stats i would say adsl.

might pay to give your isp a call and ask whats going on. it doesnt look like its your connection at your place.

Looks like you may not have your router configured correctly.
I agree with BioNZ call your ISP and get the correct settings.

I'm on normal adsl. I don't think there is an issue with the modem as I've tried several and get the same speeds...

I have called the isp and they were vague, but mentioned something about the exchange might need upgrading...

Do some speed test during the day and compare with evening and see if there is a big difference. This will indicate if there is possible exchange congestion.
Also sometimes when changing plans, it can muck up your data cap, so that could be another possibility.




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?

Who controls the data cap? isp or telecom? I've been thinking that from the start...

just an update: I've been back and forth with the isp.... still slow.

They are sending someone to look at the exchange again...

One thing I should mention: This house had to telephone lines connected. With my old provider and normal adsl, I could plug my modem into any of the four jacks in the house and get connected (at a much faster rate than I get now)

After the switch to naked adsl, only the one of the jack would work (the one in the kitchen).

When I would connect to any of the other jacks I would get an adsl signal sync, but it would time out when it tried to connect.

Is it possible that I am connected to wrong wires coming from the terminal at the end of the drive?

I was surprised that when the tech was here in the house he did not check the connection at the road.
