    Good job on the info guys, big thanks from me . We need to organise this info for users to access, you guys think this thread or a google doc is better?

    Can someone post some pics of the MSANs? There was a few in the news article, but they arent very clear in determining if what I'm seeing is actually a MSAN. The one down the road from me is a Green box (old exchange), and a big white box about 3-4 times the size right next to it. Hoping its the new MSAN

    The green box isn't an exchange, it's either a DSLAM or a mini-DSLAM. An exchange is a massive, multi-story building (depending on how.

    However, the bigger white box 3-4x in size with a blue foundation, 3 doors and (normally) a little power DB box next to it is a MSAN

    After I got upgraded my line stats are as follows:

    down up
    Rate (Kbps): 10015 1023
    SNR Margin (0.1 dB): 111 108
    Attenuation (0.1 dB): 80 33
    Attainable Rate (Kbps): 20872 1151

    noticed the SNR (noise) and line attenuation rates are quite different, what does it mean??

    SNR= The higher the better

    Attenuation=Lower the better

    Because u were upgraded to 10mb it lowers your SNR, as for the line attenuation u have been connected to a closer fibre cabinet

    Anybody have an idea when Brackenfell (021 982 xxxx) will get an MSAN?

    I got a new DSL line activated on 14 July and my modem only syncs for 2-3 hours per day. Attenuation of 48-50db and noise margin between 6 and 10db... logged two faults already and seriously considering bribing a technician to come help me the next time I spot a Telkom van :/

    I really wish they would upgrade the mini-DSLAM our complex is connected to support 10Mb in La Lucia. 031-562-xxxx
    The technician just laughed when I asked him about the 20/40Mb upgrade and said I will never see 10Mb since we're connecting to this remote exchange
