OhXtra and the Adventure plan (Hastings).

swivel, Jan 31, 3:55am

How far are u from exchange ?

badcam, Jan 31, 4:00am
That's great. Has anyone else actually experienced such dramitic results? I'm on ADSL2+ with XNet, and yet my avergage down has only gone from around 4300kbps to 5300kbps. I expected to see a bigger difference.

badcam, Jan 31, 4:01am
I'm jealous and I'm Irked!

evoeater, Jan 31, 4:02am
Badcam Xnet don't provide ADSL2 speeds unless you're on their fusion plan

badcam, Jan 31, 4:03am
And swivel! You would have to start this thread just when Xnet have gone home for the day. Thank you very much. I slap you with a wet bus ticket. Shmock!

swivel, Jan 31, 4:04am
Well Sydney is 11Mbps. But I thought i was good at the shop with 11Mbps (Business plan). But I have to say F$%^ as I didn't think id get these at home.

badcam, Jan 31, 4:04am
Evo. I am on Fusion and my router is ONLY set to ADSL2+.

badcam, Jan 31, 4:05am
11 Oh, and Xnet confirmed this last time I rang. (Memo to self, wait before posting rapid threads)

swivel, Jan 31, 4:06am
Badcam LOL. But also I use a 2Wire Modem which shows http://images.trademe.co.nz/photoserver/91/85668991_full.jpg

badcam, Jan 31, 4:12am
I'll have to Google that. 2Wire? My Router actually shows attainable line rate of between 21000 & 18000. It varies. The actual line rate is 16600 down & 945 up. I can't help but think I should be getting better rates shown through the speedtest sites, but the best I've ever achieved is 7300. I'll ring them Monday. So, what has everyone else ended up with? How much of a difference has your ASDL2+ made?

evoeater, Jan 31, 4:13am
Hmm whats your attenuation etc like badcam? Could be too far from the exchange to get a decent speed?

swivel, Jan 31, 4:17am
Badcam Difference is the speed of pages loading etc, Thats why I did the Speedtest, as last week it was 5.5Mbps.

Router Details: http://images.trademe.co.nz/photoserver/48/85670048_full.jpg

swivel, Jan 31, 4:23am
Mine Rate: 15834 kbs 933 kbs

Max Rate: 15834 kbs 933 kbs

Noise Margin: 12.0 dB 14.2 dB

Attenuation: 14.6 dB 6.0 dB

badcam, Jan 31, 4:24am
Heck. I'd like to get speedtest results like you got in 1 though. Yee-Haw!

pixma, Jan 31, 4:31am
I'd love to have speeds like that. Not getting ADSL 2+ till the end of the year :(

badcam, Jan 31, 4:36am
So from my quick Google refresher, I understand that you should be around 1kn from your exchange/DSL box and I'm around 1.5km. Now, our noise margins are similar & Noise Margins between 11dB-20dB are considered good. I still have no clue as to where I'm going with this, but I can't help but think I should get better results.

Think yourselves lucky....

swivel, Jan 31, 5:27am
Badcam Yeah, I see what your saying, our speeds should be around the same. Maybe you should change to Xtra. Atleast it doesn't get the bashing it use to.

richms, Jan 31, 5:34am
had it for ages but because of distance its the difference between 2.1 and 3.5 megs :(

steves73, Jan 31, 6:45am
