When Telecom first brought out ADSL in NZ, on their website when you went to check your phone number it would display the estimated connection speed that Telecom would think you would connect at. I can't find this feature on their site now, would telecom still be able to do this?
Reason I'm asking is we did a bit of work on our line today to see if we could get the connection speed up (few dodge connections which are now fixed) yet the DSL speed is still floating at around 1.2-1.3mb. Only guess I got is distance from the exchange, we are 4km from it which I clocked the other day to double check.
Hopefully with ADSL2 coming, they will put a dslam in the cabnet just a few doors down and will make things way faster.

I heard that Telecom are installing all the ADSL2+ dslams in the road-side cabnets due to this fact, if they used the exchanges then hardly anyone would get benefit out of it

Yeah I would believe that, Telecom's idea with its Next Gen network is to phase out I think 400-500 exchanges and fibre link all its road side cabnets to "super exchanges", hence the dslam's locations in the cabnets!
