coffeebaron: Master filter is for both ADSL or VDSL. Not all ISP's will include this for naked VDSL, so let us know how you go with asking 2degrees. If no luck, I can do master filter installs in Auckland, Waikato & BoP.


I was instructed by 2degrees that a master filter install is no longer covered under their standard connection fee. (unlike when it was SNAP)


I eagerly await the scathing blog post from sbiddle. cool

Thanks for that mate. when I came home tonite checked the jackpoint where the router connected and there's a 'S' letter sticker on it, does that mean anything? It's impossible to reach 2D, so I'm going to purchase my android box next week and will give it a go with wifi if it's bad I'll get the master filter connected and jackpoint fixed from you if you don't mind? 
Do you have a deal for Geekzone users? and I live in Te Atatu 

Cheers

EDIT: is there a way to see if I have a master filter? I'm asuming I do as not all my jackpoints work? I have that Fritz box

I'm trying to reach them since this morning which has been impossible. Have you been told recently that they don't cover master filter? 

Cheers

"VDSL installs no longer come with wiring by default. Wiring can be ordered but at an additional cost. Thanks ^KS"

Cheers for that, I already paid for wire maintenance is that what you mean? I just want to know if I have master filter and why not all my jackpoints not working?

No one came home, I just called them and asked why not all the sockets not working they said it picks the most reliable one, or something like that. Do you think installing a master filter will help boosting the speed? My main issue is I want the socket in the living room work. 

Cheers

then you are probably going to need to pay someone to sort it out for you.

a master filter may help, but no one could guarantee that

It will both improve your speed and let you put the working socket where ever you like.

 

For naked VDSL you don't probably need an actual master filter, just disconnecting all the unused sockets will do the job, but it depends on how the house is wired up (star or daisy-chain).

To be honest if 2deg don't offer the Master Filter install, you would be well advised to get someone in to do it.

I think I'll get the TV box connect it via wifi and see what the connection speed is, otherwise I'll get CoffeeBaron to take a look at it and see if I need a master filter or just socket change

You have made no mention of how good your new VDSL connection is.

You need to know this before you decide whether to spend money on re-wiring  / master filter install.

To quote PeterReader:

"If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

- you have reset your modem and router
- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing - you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap
- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing
- you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

"Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

- Your ISP and plan
- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)
- Your modem DSL stats (we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)
- Your general location (or street)
- If you are rural or urban
- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin
- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service
- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

"A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

Agreed.

My point is that if the OP has a good VDSL connection in the wrong place, that is his/her problem.
But if the OP has a bad VDSL connection in the wrong place, that is 2Degrees' problem.
