Wondering if someone can help with more definitive info on DSL availablity / future upgrades for an address near Waharoa (Matamata area).
Have checked the wholesale maps etc, but this info does not help.
I'm aware there are a lot of cabinets and upgrades espcially in rural areas that do not get on this list, so trying to track down more info on this.


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?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Locate exchange code on and then look up the Spreadsheets for forecasts.

These also have the areas getting ADSL1 upgrades from dialup etc (stolen from 2+ cabinet linked exchanges and re-deployed)

But as a general rule, unless there's over 500 wanting customers in the area I wouldn't have too many hopes
