Great, even more reason to drive over to the cousins with the laptop when I have to clear out the seedbox.

as for gbit boosts! awesome! look forward to seeing chorus catch up to the other LFCs.

 

 

This is Enable, UFF and Northpower finally catching up with what Chorus did in Dunedin 19 months ago. It's just that Chorus promised Dunedin a period of time of exclusive "Gigatown" spoils before offering the gig to the rest of the nation. I believe this is their hold-up, ie how long is a respectable period of time compared to the investment places by private funds in Dunedin to compete, win and develop Gigatown?

Holding progress for the rest of the country because some people decided to invest in getting it first is stupid. It served its purpose to prove the technology and the rest of the country should have been opened up to it as soon as it worked.

 

Now let dunedin test the 10gig service or whatever IMO.

No, It's Chorus playing catch up with UFF who have had Gigabit for probably just as long, maybe longer!

 

 





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?

Always thought that 20mbit upload to be rather stupid, Way to asymmetrical for my liking.
