A straight "yes" would suffice also ;)

read that, but i was not sure if annex A / M means something different. there is not much info for NZ section.

if it is adsl2+ why the modem sync just less than 10mbps? this is the exact same number i had while i was on ADSL1

Yes that modem is ADSL2 according to the info ive seen.

Contact your ISP to get them to check why its not syncing higher - try another router if you have one.

Thats a much more interesting question. I doubt its the same number you had with ADSL1 since it only goes up to 8Mbps.
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]:13,0 / 25,0
This shows 25dB attenuation downstream from telecom's equipment, basically a measure of the signal loss thats mostly due to distance but also can signal narrow gauge copper. 25dB isn't too bad, but the faster versions of DSL are sensitive to it. You can try to improve your house wiring with a master filter and dedicated ADSL outlet, but won't be as fast as someone who's in the same street as the ADSL cabinet. This is one of the reasons things are changing to fibre over the next 10 years.





Time to find a new industry!
