Was hoping someone might be able to provide feedback and/or advice on my situation.
Moved from Greenlane to Torbay. At my home at Greenlane I was getting over 20Mb/s connection speeds from my Snap ADSL2+ connection. Organised my move with Snap, cut over happened as promised.
To my shock & horror I was connecting at 2Mb/s!
Straight away I crawl under the house to check the wiring. Found a very long cable from the jackpoint to an old style splitter from when the house had three phone jackpoints.
I removed the loops, shortened the cable from the ADSL jackpoint & connected it to the feed from the street (yes I used gel caps). Now I'm getting 3.5Mb/s.
Purchased a master splitter & wired it in which toook me to 4.5Mb/s
Attenuation has gone down from 44Db to 38Db.
Logged a fault with Snap. Chorus have fixed faults in the feed & now I have 6.6Mb/s. The helpful person at Snap told me that Chorus have reported that this is "in spec" & closed the fault (attenuation still 38Db).
This seems really slow to me. There is a cabinet 800m from my house so I would have thought I would be getting at least 15Mb/s.
Does this seem normal to anyone out there? Any suggestions what I can do now? I will gladly help out a Chorus person if they can improve things for me.
