Hi,

I have just chedcked my DSL modem and its not showing that I have full rate DSL (previously showed the 3.5/512 rates)

Link StatusConnected
Us Rate (Kbps)864
Ds Rate (Kbps)7616

has anyone else noticed their connection speeds upgrade already ??
I did a small test and got upload speed tests of 600-700 kbps.

BTW I am with slingshot,and reside in chch.

This is coming from a few people who work at Alcatel who are in my CCNA class:

For the last few months, in preperation of the big Oct 26 launch of maxed speeds they have been testing each PBX's potential so that they have a good idea of how much bandwidth they are going to need. All they do is set everyone's line speed up all the way and see what stability with different throughputs they get. Its a safe bet that they will either leave your connection at this speed (to seamlessly upgrade your plan), or it will settle back down to normal in the next few days.

Telecom Needs to go through and configure all the DSLAMs for max speeds, with 700+ DSLAMS it'll take a while, hence why on the 26th not everyone will be migrated to the new plans straight away as all the hardware needs configuring and that explains why they started early.

checked my speed meter this morning before coming to work and reported about 6mb/s -- so seems my exchange has been upgraded already, too :-)

How do you manage to get 4Mbps when the rest of use could only get 3.5?

Your modem should have a diagnostics page that will give you this info. You probably have to log into using the web based interface. It might be at http://10.1.1.1 or whatever it says in the instruction book...

I hope it is not "SNR MARGIN" as that is only at 36.4 compared to my 34.1 "Line Attenuation"

great...i was getting 3400kbps speed test last week and now i am getting 2400kbps speed test from ihug as being my ISP....though my router is already giving me a sync rate of 7616/896

ihug told me that wait for 2 days as it might be a congestion problem and should resolve automatically in 2 days.....
