Mum is on a Spark ADSL plan in Auckland, and I told her she should consider going to VDSL . 

 

There is no master splitter/filter installed... if we upgrade her to a spark VDSL plan , will they install a master splitter? And, does that cost anything? 

 

I 'could' install one myself as I have done so before at my house, but better they do it :)

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Master filter install is easy. If it's simple. The optional optimisation of existing wiring and multiple sockets etc is the pita part could consume more of a weekend than intended. Unless you're a practiced pro like coffeebarron.

On the plus side installing a master filter could get more performance from existing adsl.

Checked for fibre?


Edit: master filter retail is down to $20 for some reason it's a good time for it.
