The Telecom New Zealand Wholesale VDSL2+ page doesn't have any style, and I'm copying the text here before it goes down:

Wholesale VDSL2 Service

Wholesale VDSL2 Service (WVS) is a premium, next generation service targeted towards high value broadband end-users. It delivers super-fast speeds. It is optimised to enable service providers to innovate and tailor their customers' broadband experience - with the best coverage in New Zealand.

WVS is now in the soft launch phase. This gives service providers the opportunity to develop products to meet the needs of their end-users and ensure support services are available. 

Broadband services based on WVS are targeted at:

High value residential end-users who currently pay $50 or more for their broadband, and:

Are performance conscious, including tech savvy individuals, gamers and families with teenagers.
Want faster performance (throughput and headline speed), latest technology (got to have) and multiple connections with minimal speed degradation.

Small businesses with one to five users who currently consume a consumer broadband plan, and want:

Faster performance (throughput) to access services, consistency in times of congestion, faster upload to quicker file transfer and multiple connections with minimal speed degradation.

Proof of Concept - End User Equipment

The purpose of the Proof of Concept testing in the Telecom’s Network Integration Laboratory (NIL) is to assist customer premises equipment vendors and service providers to:

  • Validate the compatibility of selected modems and residential gateways (RGWs) against the requirements of WVS

  • Identify suitable modems and residential gateways for WVS

  • As an optional step, test the backward compatibility of the modems/gateways with ADSL2+

Through trialling, the project will reduce risk, fill knowledge gaps and increase likelihood of successful delivery.

Just to clarify for those getting excited - this is wholesale information aimed at service providers that are/will be offering WVS so it's pretty irrelevant to individuals.

Sigh. Wouldn't mind being on the vdsl2 trial. Currently on a vdsl2 cabinet and on the limit (10dB of attenuation), but, this would need my provider to allow us to get this. Not sure how far Worldxchange are along this.
