We live in a (apparently) ADSL2+ Area, yet the modem only syncs at 7200ish tops. Have disconnected the other phone jacks from the master jack and plugged modem in and it hardly changed (7300ish)
And Chorus only recently moved the ETP from the roof to under the house, so new cable etc to the master jack (it was underground but the cable was over roof to ETP on gutter, was never completed)

But the thing that gets me is that all the houses in our street and northward get moved to Cabinets later this year EXCEPT the block we're on, as we must be deemed 2km from the exchange (I'm guessing).

Is it worth trying to get Telecom/Chorus to put our block on the cabinet too? (The Telecom Wholesale ADSL2+ map showed me our block not getting cabinets, whereas everyone else does)

Mmmnope. And chances are your house wont be terminated at the same location to be able to.

If your modem is infact ADSL2+ enabled, and the distance is too far, it will back down to ADSL1.1/G.DMT

Which yes, will max out at around 7. Might need to list your model, and line stats to get a better idea of noise attenuation.

Not sure if this is the case for you but I recently had a customer whose cabinet was upgraded to adsl2+ but their router never synced any faster than it did before.
A firmware update of the router didn't fix it.
The router was saying it was using adsl2+ but sync speeds stayed at adsl.
Got another brand of router and tried it and it had the same problem.
Then got a Draytek and it too had the same problem until I flashed it with the UK version of the firmware.
Now they sync at almost twice the speed.
So my point is do you have access to another router you can try?
