VDSL is here in New Zealand

Hi All,

Mark Petrie from Snap Internet kindly contacted me to see if I’d like to participate in the Snap VDSL trial a few weeks ago, so I thought I’d do a write up of my experiences so far. I was supplied with one of the CellPipe 7130 VDSL/WIfi routers. The routers are very configurable, it’s performing well Smile



Configuration was easy, a factory reset, removal of all of the ATM configuration and the adding of the following WAN PTM Configuration.





Here’s the sync information with my Telecom Exchange.


I kicked off a few speed tests on with the following results.


According to Mark’s letter to the Commerce Commission Telecom Wholesale appear to be limiting the Upload speeds in the their cabinets to 10MB.


Here’s some international speed tests.
