I'm thinking about making a switch to Telecom from Telstra.
I'm presently on the 20GB/month 10mbps $79.95 plan and have noticed that Telecom are offering a 40GB fixed ip plan for the same price.
I live in Parkway Wainuiomata (Lower Hutt) and according to Telecom am 905m from the exchange.
They can't give me any clues as to what down speed I would get other than it will be a maximum of 7mbps (ADSL).
My Street isn't scheduled to get ADSL2 until Jan 2012.
Is there anybody on this forum that lives near me that could give me an idea of what I'd be in for??
The International speeds on Telstra haven't been great (eg the NZ Ubuntu mirror, which ends up travelling to LA and back again).
I'm figuring the speed back to the exchange is the least of my problems, and wouldn't notice too much the drop back to ADSL.
Any advice appreciated
