Been reading that for anyone with high ping or just want less of it, get in contact with your ISP and ask them to turn interleaving off... 

 

 

 

I know that Vodafone ISP allows you to request interleaving to be off by calling help desk on 0800 438 448 and request interleaving be turned off (http://help.vodafone.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/5615/~/what-is-interleaving-and-its-benefits%3F)

I thought that interleaving could only be turned off for ADSL connections. Or can it also be turned off for VDSL as well?

I personally wouldn't turn it off.

The difference is not going to make you a better gamer by any means.

It's not until you actually play a game dependent on those packets, that you realize the hit you take for the CRC errors some days.

 

Comparing my interleaving off line compared to vectored vdsl, It's light and day.

 

 

 

Bursts of errors hit minor losses of packets.

 

Further to this, when you take the time to understand the effect of packetloss on tcp/ip there are some very compelling reasons not to turn interleaving off.

Aredwood: I thought that interleaving could only be turned off for ADSL connections. Or can it also be turned off for VDSL as well?

 

It's a great question tbh, one that i've argued many times to actually understand.

 

 

 

There are FF profiles that can be ordered, just like interleavings. As far as i'm aware a standard service order doesnt work on VDSL for interleavings though.

 

With vectoring on many of the cabinets, Fibre available in most that aren't, The situations where someone could want it is a ever shrinking pool.

 

 

 

regardless ddDLM will drop to 1ms/0ms profiles where suited and otherwise it likes to sit on 8ms. I can't think of a single line on 16ms that i've seen this year.

 

Personally i'd like to see a 4ms profile in there, but again.. we have vectoring in many cases now.
