I am currently with Vodafone with their "Red Network", which isn't too bad, with 14mbps down, 1mbps up and an average 25ms ping to local Auckland servers. However to do things like live stream, and upload youtube, a 2.5mbps upload is pretty essential (at least very useful).
After doing some research I've found that I am out of zone for VDSL, by about 2 houses (and I did a line check and I have 13db, so either way I can't get VDSL). Then I checked when I'm expected to get Fibre broadband as rolled out by Chorus.
Turns out, my street gets in December this year... except for a few houses. I am about 3 houses away from that. Thus meaning I have to wait till 2014+ to get Fibre (at least on Chorus's network).
I've now come down to my final option. And that is Vector's network. It turns out I am currently in their Fibre network. I have exchanged several emails with them however they have told me they do not deal with customers directly and that they only wholesale their network out to other ISP's. I've been trying to figure out which ISPs exactly (if any) are currently offering services under Vector's network.
I have emailed them back, however I am getting rather mixed responses from them, so I am asking the community here, if anyone has experience with Vector's fibre network. Either residential, or business. And if they know any ISP's which are offering services under their network.
OR if anybody knows of a way for me to get a faster upload, without getting two connections, or paying $250+/month.
(PS I live in Glenfield, Auckland).
Thanks in advanced,
