So Telecom is now telling me: "Great! This address is near a roadside cabinet which has already been upgraded with ADSL2+ technology." The map shows that out of our town that we have 2 cabinets ADSL2+ enabled now but ("Service Area: WK/Exchange, Status: Scheduled Dec 2011") the exchange has not been. Do we need the exchange to recieve the ADSL2+ speed or will it be automatic? Also will any new cabling be required to upgrade or just a plan with ADSL2+ speed?



I mean although I already have lightning fast speeds, would new cabling be required?

Also this in our router:
Downstream Line Rate (Kbps):6688Upstream Line Rate (Kbps):160
I presume thats our current max cable rates we would get if our plan wasn't speed capped?
We are approx 1.2-1.5KM from the cabinet with a rough guess. Will this give us good speeds?

Thanks

the through put on your speed test is really really low.

but your sync rate is ok. (thats the stats from the router)

ADSL2+ effects your sync rate, once you get put on it you should get something like 10-15mb (guess) with your current rate being 6-7mb.

if you are on a cabinet and that gets put on / upgraded to ADSL2+ then u get the speed boost
or if you are on the exchange it will happen when the exchange gets upgraded.

I think the OP is on a 256/128 plan.

You'll need to change off your old 128kbps plan if you want faster speeds. You also haven't said if you're actually being served by one of these cabinets or the exchange - if you are off the exchange you won't get ADSL2+ until that is upgraded.

Depending on your exact distance from the cabinet or exchange you'll probably want to look at the instalaltion of a master filter. Plug in filters always limit your maximum performance.

Yes on a 256/128 plan for the last 8 years i think. I'm guessing we are being served by a cabinet based solely on the Telecom map, as we fall within that cabinets range. If that sync rate is attainable does that mean it possible to get that speed based on what infastructure we currently have? I find it quite funny when people complain about gaming with 100ms of lag, when I'm used to playing with a minimum of about 400ms, and it would be nice to stream youtube at 240p for once Wink

as it currently stands you have a attainable download rate of about 6.6Mbit down but your old plan is limiting you to 0.256Mbit down. if you change to a full speed plan your speed will be hugely faster even on adsl1

if you stay on that plan adsl2 means nothing .... if you had changed plan 8 years ago you would have had good speed for the last 8 years.

If you changed plans now you should get around 6Mbps down, regardless of whether you're on a new cabinet.

Once you are on a new cabinet you should easily get 10Mbps+, average sync speeds are around 14Mbps with a properly instralled master filter.

Okay things are becoming clearer to me. Im guessing that 'ADSL_G.dmt' means the router will only sync ADSL speeds currently?
"Attenuation (0.1 dB): 225 110" Is that bad?

NONE of this matters not your router not the cabinet not the exchange not your wiring.

UNTILL you change from the prehistoric 256k/128k plan you are on.

Your connection stats are actually pretty good, it's your plan which is restricting your speeds. You would have actually had faster speeds for years if you had changed earlier!

Haha well thanks for the help. I will most likely get an upgrade I guess. Considering we our currently paying about $80 I think we could probably do better.

Once again thanks for clearing things up :)
