I don't think much (new) will change now for the next couple of years - so perhaps now is a good time to get a 700/1800/2600 CAT6 phone, which will be your best advantage for the next couple of years. Though perhaps wait until early next year and see what the Samsung and HTC handset launches give us :)





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?

True, but for a lot of people where a 2 year life span for a phone is the norm; a 700/1800/2600 CAT6 LTE, VoLTE capable phone should do the job for the next couple of years.

Oh boy are we going through the motions again.

I remember Vodafone being targeted by the ComCom for a sort of similar claim a couple years back when talking about WCDMA900 coverage.

(The photo there is mine too :P)
