When moving house is there a chance you may be put on a waiting list for broadband, even if that house is not rural and in the middle of town/main center with ADSL2/VDSL available? Does chorus install enough ports for every house where theres high demand and high concentration? Im assuming all these problems are solved with fiber?
Please don't PM me regarding Vu+Duo boxes or other Satellite Receivers as i'm no longer involved with any of this equipment.
There is a chance that you could be a waiter even in a main centre. A friend moved into Parnell ( Central Auckland ) a year or two ago and has just recently been told that he can be connected to dsl.
Fibre should mean that is a thing of the past as both phone and internet are supplied over the same equipment rather than having a copper line for the POTS and then jumpering to the dsl equipment. A lot of exchanges can have limited space for extra racks/power although cabinetisation can alleviate that.
