And why are they apparently bad?
they dont have master filters installed as part of the vdsl installation, which can be pretty destructive to the customer themselves experience, and others in the same cable bundle as them. to many respects, its certainly by no imagination the smartest move.
ild hate to see an influx of people looking for a cheap vdsl connection rolling to them, then being upset when they are told they should go ask coffeebarron for a splitter, because their line obviously is in dire need of it (which honestly, every line without one is, to many respects.)
Remember Snap and other ISP's initially made Master Filters optional too.
Either way there is a cost whether:
- Chorus install and charge over 30 months
- Chorus install and charge one lump some
- A third party installs and charges their going price
they did, but then it is now bundled in, which makes sure in-optional installations shouldnt happen..
