steblin: Yeah tried enabling the VDSL wan interface and wouldn't connect.

For my own knowledge, what is it that stands out in those stats that would make VDSL so poor?

Only getting 10Mbps on ADSL = don't get VDSL.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Will give Orcon a call for advice, and get someone out next week to look at the wiring.

You are not going to get VDSL you should only be on a ADSL2+ connection

Your DSL stats are showing 26dB downstream attenuation, now assuming your internal wiring is not artificially contributing to this (ie poor internal wiring) then that suggests around 1.9km of cable between you and the line card. VDSL is only suitable for lines up to around half this length, so stay with ADSL.

We’ve got customers at 2000m line length getting 20Mbps VDSL with vectoring enabled.

Fair enough, my comments related to pre vectoring.

What uplink speed are they getting at that distance?

You seem to have 2 issues:

 

1) Internal wiring could do with being sorted - likely contributing to the errors you see on the line, although not hugely high.

 

2) You do not currently have a VDSL connection - would pay to confirm with Orcon what the connection should be, and what you are paying for.

One of my upcoming projects is to compile a “current state of VDSL vectoring” and graph speeds vs line distance.

So I can’t give you a definite figure, but I don’t think we have many lines beyond 1000M getting more than 1Mbps upload.

Typically 1.5-2km is the distance that upload drops to 1Mbps on VDSL.

With 26dB attenuation I would expect a little better than 10Mbps sync rates.

Get the internal sorted out and you may hey a small increase.

Certainly not VDSL though

vectored lines will be less upload than they used to be on the edge. Reason being is the shift from 8b to 17a has a decrease in power level.

If above us0 is used. It's possible to see an increase as vectoring has a habit of allowing a few extra bins on the higher side.
Overall though chorus sadly don't enforce vectoring modems. If they did, they could look at vectoring upstream rather than just protecting it (which is still benefitical just doesn't increase speeds in most cases)


In the OPs case it looks like a dodgy line. Snr is pulling back to account for this. At 6db that current line would be about 13mbit. And if it was cleared up a tad I could see it gain a little more.

It's never going to have great upload I'd expect though.

If you haven't given Orcon a call already @steblin then feel free to flick me your account details in a private message.

 

I can double check your account and sort out a downgrade.
