I had a tech come and visit my place and they say that this is the best they can do (the above speeds are actually a bit slower than the original speeds I got when I was first connected about a month ago, upstream was around 1Mb and downstream about 0.95Mb). They said that theres a fibre connected cabinet about 100m away from my place but I can't be connected to it because Orcon doesn't have its equipment installed. Should I switch Xtra's ADSL plan in the hopes of improving my speeds? I spoke to a friend who works for Telecom's data management department and he said that his dad was connected to this same cabinet and was getting 4.5Mb downstream?
I am very disillusioned with the speeds I am currently getting and just wonder (or rather hope) if I should be getting something slightly better given my specs?
I should also mention that I have a dedicated ADSL jack installed and only 1 phone connected.
