I'm roughly 3kms from the exchange, i have tried different modems, phone lines and cables and have made sure the settings are right on my modems and on my iinet account.
the only other option i can do is to get an iinet tech out to check for faults in the line but if he finds nothing is wrong then i have to pay a call out of $150.
well that could look very normal depending on what speed you are paying for. ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ typically takes a profile from the DSLAM you are connected to. So for instance, if all they have you set for is a 5mbps down/1mbps up profile those speeds are pretty close. Best bet... I would call your ISP and find out exactly what speeds you are paying for. An ADSL2/ADSL2+ modem can do up to 24mbps sure, but if you are not paying for that service, most won't give you the profile information coding in the DSLAM to achieve that.
Depending on modem, most should show you the sync rate inside the modem... I could give you an idea what to look at but need the make and model to have an idea as to what to look at.

Thank you for your help guys!
I am paying for adsl 2+ speeds I have spoke to my ISP before and they said its most likely a fault in the wiring but i am just worried i will have to pay $150
I think im going to have to just get them to come out and test the wiring because i cant think of anything else.
Its either i risk that and pay $150 if there is no problem, or i can leave it and be left wondering if i am not getting the speeds i should be.
