Annex.M on Nexicom?

Anyone know if Nexicom will do Annex.M? Im needing a bit of an upload speed boost, but Im not sure who to contact for this.

You could just contact Nexicom, although they probably don't have the necessary equipment deployed for it.

Why not? Most newer ADSL2+ DSLAMs can do it.

Yes we can do Annex M if it's an area served by our DSLAM's, but if it's off our DSLAM's (Peterborough, Lindsay, Millbrook, Cavan, Keene areas) you can also get VDSL.

note that ADSL2+ still uses the ATM network backend, if you're running simultaneous up/down traffic you're better off with VDSL because of ATM overhead.

ADSL2+ does not require ATM. It's capable of the same PTM mode that VDSL2 uses to carry ethernet directly. While Nexicom's ADSL2+ network probably does use ATM, it's not a given.

I called in but they had no idea about vdsl, so I didnt even mention Annex M. Not that I expected different. Frontline is like that anywhere, not saying anything bad.

That's correct -we do not use ATM on our ADSL/VDSL networks... we have one extremely small deployment left that is ATM based and it'll be converted to pure ethernet shortly as well...:)

Sorry - somehow I missed this update ... did you get the answers you were looking for? If not, I'd call in again and ask for a supervisor as the front line should be fully aware of VDSL (maybe not so much Annex M)

Cheers,
