I'm wondering if the "coding gain" option also applies to VDSL. If not that far out, try a higher value and run a speed test, everytime!You simply have have the luck to get all the boxes ticked - close range, no interference.
No kids? The moment a game console with four controllers is fired up, bluetooth devices tend to shrivel up and die.
Oh, i posted in the GN thread and forgot here: I got a new modem/router for $20 second hand.
It's a fairly tall, but nice looking ADSL2+, VDSL, or gigabit cat5e router. (not my pics)

My ISP has a little oddity, in that when you change modems over, it takes 15 minutes for the swap to happen. Some technical reason, you get downtime if you swap.
Thing is... i was getting a 25/5 connection solid, instead of my expected 60/20... while "disconnected"
Removed the phone cord from the wall. Connected.
Factory reset so i could log in, check the stats. "Backup 4G modem activated, check connection"
Turns out these are only sold and used for Telstras top tier plans, with 4G instant backup so they can cover up all their outages. The owners are meant to return these, or they face a $200 fine if they dont stay on their 24 month contract.
So either the previous owner pays a $200 fine, or they give me free 25/5 internet for upto 24 months. I guess i wont be stuck offline any time soon.

My only irritation is that I'm capable of syncing at 84, sync at 82, yet get 55-70 depending on the modem. Why the gap, guys?
