RunningMan: With 35dB attenuation, I'd expect you would be too far away to get VDSL. That's a pretty good connection for the attenuation though.


Thanks, I thought that might be the case from what I'd read on Geekzone.
Yes speed was half what I get now, until coffebaron came around and dealt to the wiring Smile

+1 for Slingshot VDSL2.


As soon as the plans are available, I would be interested in changing.
While im happy on Slingshot AYCE, more potential DL & UL never hurt :)

That is until Riccarton is upgraded with UFB  (Hurry up enable, customer is waiting here :) )

i wish they would just hurry up and do the city first, the sooner they lay the cable the sooner the roads can be fixed!

Come on Slingshot, Telecom have announced their VDSL plans and they're very good. Trying to hold on and wait but you're making it hard....

Well those plans look very attractive And as I've been a slingshot customer for many years now looks like I will be switching

Will give Slingshot 1 month to comeup with Vdsl2 otherwise Telecom will get my  custom

Also keen on VDSL seeing as there is no unlimited UFB plan as yet.

My street is UFB ready but not according to slingshot.

Hey guys,

According to my-higher ups we currently don't need anyone for VDSL testing.

I would assume that this would be advertised or announced if we are planning on trialing VDSL with any larger trial groups.

Regards,

Slingshot Team

I wouldn't hold your breath about it being ready within a month. They'll announce the plans and won't offer it for several more months after that (a la UFB).

Snap VDSL now includes free wiring and connection with POTS line for $95. It includes 100GB data and further options for more data with free data between 1am-7am.

Bye bye Slingshot.

Cellphone is better than pots line too, Not keen on any forced bundling of an obsolete landline with my internet.
