John Papandriopoulos, a Research Fellow with the ARC Special Research Centre for Ultra-Broadband Information Networks (CUBIN), in the EEE department at the University of Melbourne has developed a method to reduce crosstalk interference in 9Mbps (ADSL), 25Mbps (ADSL2+), and 250Mbps (VDSL2) to bring speeds up the theoretical maxima possible. With an Australian Federal election due in a few weeks, and both parties promising improved broadband speeds and access, (despite technical limitations in both parties offerings) this is a welcome development, hopefully enabling higher speeds without huge expenses."
