Have you tried to order VDSL? Chorus' map shows coverage there.

Wouldn't 8mbps sync be far outside of VDSL range?

That crossed my mind, although it's possible that it's just dodgy internal wiring that'll be cleaned up with a full VDSL install (although I think I read that full installs aren't done by default anymore).

Those estimates are done using a mapping tool and a calculator.


Most of the time they are out by thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. Some times they are close but I would say about 70% of the time they are not even close from what I have seen.


I had one for 15k end up being 6k and another for 45k be 16k.


They can be submitted to Chorus for full costings.
