Was playing around in my router settings and noticed that my ADSL mode was set to G.DMT, so i changed it to ADSL2+ becuase i'm on the red network which has adsl2+ enabled. This change increased my sync speed by about 300kbps download. What's the different between G.DMT and ADSL2+? Is G.DMT adsl1? Why would my router be set to that my default?

Yes G.DMT is ADSL1, dont know why it would be the default, most modems select mutimode which is essentially automatic so they go as high as possible.

The fact the Sync rate increased only 300kb/s indicates you are probably better off staying on ADSL1, maybe you could post those rates.

The main reason i changed it to adsl2+ is so i know when my cabinet is installed.... it's due to be done by the end of this year.

If i kept it on G>DMT, i'd never know would i?

Hi, if you are on th ered network then there is no way you will ever be cabnetised, or if you are you will suffer poor sync rates.

The speeds you are getting are consistant with your attenuation which implies around 2.5km of cable.

If the telecom wholesale site states your address will eventually be cabinetised then I recommend you change back to a telecom wholesale plan to get better speeds.

I'm changing to a wholesale plan next month.

Most people who are on the red network and who have a cabinet installed nearby, will get moved to wholesale automatically anyway.

I think you will find they have a general policy to do so, but as with most things, if you want to get results it pays to drive the process as much as you can yourself to get what you want.

ADSL2+ will slow down automatically if the sync speed isn't reliable using Seamless Rate Adaptation. Looks like your noise margin is a bit low so might be more stable and/or slower. However, Vodafone's RED network can use PPPoE to get faster speeds, at least something to experiment with before you switch back to Telecom.





Time to find a new industry!
