spoonboy: Ok, I've registered on the web site.
In the mean time, two questions:
1. I'm currently on ADSL2+ with TNZ using TG582n model. Will it be possible to use the same modem with BigPipe (I'm not sure if it's locked to be used with Telecom only)?
2. I'm in Wellington City, but my address is not covered by TNZ VDSL. I presume this is because I have a direct line to exchange and apparently Telecom doesn't provide VDSL for such cases. So, is there a chance to get VDSL from you?
1) yes, that modem works. Telecom don't lock their modems. It shouldn't need any configuration or anything like that (unless you want to fiddle around in it of course - but that's up to you)
2) If you can't get VDSL with Telecom, then you almost certainly can't get it with anybody at all. All ISPs use the same VDSL equipment provided by Chorus. PM me your address and I can take a look, but it's very likely you can't get VDSL.
