sbiddle:dynamiccomputers: I have just had VDSL install in Ashburton. Line attenuation is 21db, am about 750m from the cabinet.
down speed about 16-17Mbps, up speed about 7Mbps.
Snap is the ISP. I see they have updated their T&C as well , their old info the other day said no contract if existing ADSL user, not they have changed it.
Installation charge seems excessive, given the installer does less than ADSL, think they are charging a premium just because they can.
An install includes compulary installation of a VDSL2 filter.
I'm actually surprised your install was done, as once again that's excessive attenuation which has the potential to cause an impact on the network and speeds don't fall anywhere near Telecom wholesale targets.
sbiddle: You don't have a very good connection there. While the remedial CRC error figure isn't excessively high, it's not good either, which will be caused by the excessive attenuation.
Your connection would be vastly superior on ADSL2+, you'll get significantly better downstream speeds, but won't get the greater upstream speeds.
ADSL2 is a lot slower, about 10m down and .8 up.
jnimmo: Well finally got VDSL connection up at my first location but results are disappointing (as I was beginning to expect). Much worse upload than our ADSL connection.
Next one is going in on Monday, but attenuation is good there so should be more successful!

wjw:jnimmo: Anyone who has played with the Fritz!Box able to tell me whether the device can act in half bridge mode, or turn off NAT - so I can get a public IP address presented on ethernet0?
It will run in bridge mode yes, just set it to run as a DSL modem:
