i have gone around on a few threads saying bout my fritzbox 7390  saying how bad its sync on my rural line ,being quite a distance from the exchange 4.9ks ,but really, should it be that bad as nearly 1 mbit drop in speed ?
 
i was hoping it be really good  :( only reason i brought it  

on my fritz boz  2.9 - 3.0

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

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 (do not worry about posting Speedtest, 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

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

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.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance? (very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?




I am the Geekzone Robot and I am here to help. I am from the Internet. I do not interact. Do not expect other replies from me.

I found my telecom 2wire would sync faster than any other brand of modem. And, it showed in real world performance too. 

Different modem chipsets make varying choices based on line noise/quality I guess.  I wouldn't think differences like this would be unusual. 

I wonder what the optimum speed is?  I went from 18Mbps ADSL to 47Mbps VDSL and web page load times generally don't feel much quicker. I guess the bottle neck is the webserver in those cases.

Have you got the modem stats? (sync rate etc) of both modems? They both have different chipsets in them so sync will be different. I've noticed with my Fritz!Box in comparison with the TG582 there's a bit of a difference, but the Fritz!Box achieves a much higher upload sync rate.

I'd recommend getting Snap to run a line test - is this Naked ADSL or Clothed? Another thing to consider is maybe investing in a master filter to try to help your line speeds a bit. A bit of a shame the Fritz!Box is syncing that low - you might be connected to an old cabinet but I find generally the Fritz will sync lower, achieve higher upstream and have a far more stable connection in the process.

It's clothed line .already got a master filter fitted ....have already rang snap bout the speed deference between the fritzbox . they not really convinced with my results ..... how much more proof do i have to give them ?....snap doing sum line tests not that will help I suppose....

Sounds like you've done everything you can, might be literally being this far from the exchange might be the issue.

yeah true ,all i am getting at is that people with rural lines that are quite far from the exchange the fritzbox might  not be ideal.


 anyone want a fritzbox? i see if snap will take it back (doubt they will) since i payed $65 for it ,if i had the free one i wouldn't had a issue
