Ok..

I went on the following site..
http://www.telecom.co.nz/broadband/speed/adsl2

I type in all my info. It says I am experiencing ADSL 2+ speeds. Is 150-250KBPS high speed? Dont think so..

What do you think is wrong? Please help..

What are your modem line stats?

Have you a modem that supports adsl 2+?

What location are you getting those speeds from?

Been to Speedtest.net for a speed check ?
That page you mentioned is generally for checking if your exchange is offering ADSL2+, wont really help with any speed issues youre having.

As JohnR mentioned, post your modem line stats etc and it'll hopefully start to give an idea of where your problem lies.

Sounds like you are relying on speedtest and a mention of being in an ADSL2+ enabled exchange/cabinet area?

Time for a clearer understanding.

ADSL/2+ are a connection standard. The earlier with a maximum theoretical downrate of around 7mbps. The latter, 20ish.

I am on a cabinetised area, and get a Adsl2+ SYNC rate of around 14.5mbps. Can I DL at that rate? no way. Im lucky to get 260K/s on a good day.

The way it is in NZ, they can promise you an ADSL2+ connection, but only need to provide more than 32Kb to call it broadband. Most of the time however, that is a rate between you, and the closest ISAM.. nothing more.

The rate that servers and interconnects between ISPs (peering) end up being once they reach your cabinet however, totally irrelivent to what you think telecom tell you you should be getting.

In this case, they are likely correct. And you will be syncing at ADSL2+ standard. But as said, without knowing your connection stats. Can't be proven.

I'm connected at a 14000 Kbps rate (14MBps) yet i can easily get over 1000kb/s transfer rate. I have heard alot of slow connections due to the ISP pooling bandwidth. Xnet don't seem to be limiting ours much at all - so slingshot is doing this - and with the overloading now, most users won't get much bandwidth at all.

Not related to the OP, but imo 2mbps when your sync rate is 14.5 means you're experiencing either ISP congestion or exchange congestion. I doubt a cabinet will be congested so its probably the ISP.
I sync at 20mbit and get 18mbit on a good day, 14 on a worse day (for speedtest.net anyway)

Odds are your internal house wiring is affecting your ADSL performance.

What are your ADSL stats from your modem?

What ISP are you with?  What plan?  Sounds like something is amiss.  Where did you get that 150-250KBPS from?  Torrent? Speedtest to an NZ or overseas server?

(You mean 14mbit right?)

I sync at 17mbit and I can do ~14mbit/s downloads (Which is about right with overheads etc) offpeak on xnet.

Don't ask about onpeak, it's crap :|

In your web browser enter the URL 192.168.1.254, you will be presented with a home page of the router, then click on Broadband connection then DSL connection, somewhere in the details you should find a table of details such as attenuation, sync rates etc.

15Mbps connection rate. Not a lot wrong with that.

So now, it comes down to where you are getting the data from, or your ISP contention
