Who else agrees that the new http://www.chorus.co.nz/maps is a poor cousin to http://www.chorus.co.nz/sat ?

Although there is some new data in /maps, the level of detail and layout is just not the same. Why not upgrade /sat to have the new info??

Thoughts?
Protests?
etc...




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

To be fair in the last 6 months I'd say about 50% of what was on the site was up to date. Sites showing VDSL which couldn't get it, and vica versa.

That mapping tool is useless. SAT is far far superior. Don't do it Chorus!!

But is this just an embeded link to /sat? I guess we'll find out once /sat is gone.

I think so. I hope that Chorus keeps this up afterwards.

Would be great with some basic info ie (estimated) downstream attenuation for DSL, EUBA/BUBA... and definitely should show the exchange & cabinet info like the SAT.

These details are available to any ISP and doing a prequal is 30 second job, but will never be made publically available for a number of reasons.

I've just sent an email linking to this thread to some of the relevant people I know who maintain the new maps portal and within Chorus.

We'll see what they come back to me via email, or if they respond to this thread.
