So I'm moving into a new house in 2 weeks and as such have been exploring my options regarding ISP's, packages, ADSL vs VDSL etc...
I want to get a package that provides at least 150GB monthly allowance along with the fastest speeds possible while paying up to the $130 mark per month.
After some much appreciated input on other threads (thanks all who offered advice) I'm leaning towards a SNAP! VDSL contract but... up until this week I hadn't even heard of VDSL and it seems from the reading of posts that I've done on these forums that it's potentially a far less straightforward option than the common-or-garden ADSL (wiring sensitivity, distance from exchange/cabinet etc).
Can some of you kind and learned folk please provide, in reasonably simple terms, your opinions on the VDSL option? Is it something I should approach with trepidation or with arms wide open...? Is it reasonably user friendly or only to be tackled by seasoned veterans...?
As part of this request, so that I can try to tell if VDSL is worthwhile to pursue further at my new address, can someone clarify how to determine the exact position of a cabinet from the Chorus Service Availability Tool please? Said address falls within the CLE/BS VDSL capable cabinet area but I cannot tell where specifically the cabinet is and thus, how many metres it is from my property... Does it matter?
I hope these questions don't seem to babbly... I'm afraid it's a case of I simply don't know what I don't know...
Please and thank you :)
