They have made it pretty clear in the past that they see themselves as being a Telecom wholesale customer rather than installing their own network.

snnet: Just wondering, are there any plans for wXc to enter the local loop unbundling arena?

Directly quoted from here:

5. Does WXC have any plans to install their own gear in Telecom exchanges like Orcon and Vodafone?
No – It is very expensive and (in my view) commercially non-viable unless we can saturate all unbundled exchanges. If we did put our own gear in the exchanges it would result in some stranded assets when the cabinetisation program is complete and Telecom exchanges that house that hardware disappear over the next ten years. Other carriers are making that investment and where it makes sense, we may engage them to lease access as an alternative to Telecom.

Yep, any Chorus upgrades are an upgrade for you :)

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
