I think something similar happened to me in Avonhead.
Lots of work going on, but no ADSL2 upgrade officially yet.

But I went from 4.3 to 2.9...

We were due for adsl2 by December and the new cabinet is there and the old one has been removed so I assume I'm meant to be on adsl2, but perhaps I'm wrong?

Yea, you line probably not cut over yet, so coming all the way from exchange and suffering mid point injection. As advised, wait a few days.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their ADSL broadband network faster. Why not spend a couple of hundred to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
