I've been trying to follow the VDSL2 news from telecom for the last few years and there has been very little. Does anyone know when we can expect to see VDSL2 being available for business customers?

I've emailed the telecom business team a few times to see if we could get onto a trial or find out about a release date, but have had no joy.

Our business would benefit greatly from an upgrade to VDSL2, we do a lot of database transfers between here and the US and we're limited by our 1Mbit/s upstream on ADSL2+ at the moment. Hopefully we would see a full 10Mbit up on VDSL2 as we're practically sitting on the cabinet.

I asked TelstraClear a few months ago and was told that there was currently no ETA. Hopefully it's not too far off now though...

There are already a couple of ISP's selling a retail product. Most ISP's still seem to be internally trialling the product still.

VDSL2 is available from a few ISPs at this time including Worldnet and Xtreme Networks. If most of your traffic is international, Xtreme may be a bit expensive however.

It's a bit odd how long it's take retail ISP's to offer it, there is definitely a home business work from home market there imo.

Indeed; there's definitely demand for it. Although in my case it's a bit moot since the cabinet hasn't gone in yet and nobody seems to know when it's happening.
