Tend to agree there. I honestly can't see FTTH within 10 years in NZ, widepread introduction anyway, I few area's have had it installed by its limited to a handful of locations.
If I could get a stable 10Mb down 750Kb up DSL connection I'd be happy, but at present DSL connections are so unstable its not funny.
If your connection is unstable then you have a fault.
I find DSL to be rock solid other than during outages or when telecom are doing work on it. - Slow yes, but stable. Data always gets in and out.
