Who said anything about they are not doing it... 

Why would they waste putting VDSL2+ cards in the exchanges / Cabinets

It will come when they do it i guess??

the cards are there, they just choose not to purchase the service from Telecom wholesale,  along with practically every other ISP out there.

Telecom retail is not Telecom Wholesale which in turn is not Chorus.

There are at least 4 ISPs I know of offering VDSL2. We are using it at our Wellington office and get around 30mbps down and 10mbps up with 30ms ping.

I would say that 90% of ADSL subscribers don't need VDSL2, I don't

I would say 90% of consumers don't require a bigger connection than ADSL2+ Offers, but almost all businesses would benefit from a larger upstream connection.

Along with the ability for multiple IP's (two would be nice) over a VDSL or ADSL2+ Connection.

JohnR, I really wish VF would reconsider it's position of offering more than 1 ip per connection. Some of the other ISP's do offer it, so it must be possible. Perhaps a small trial of the technology could be attempted with a group of tech savy customers to allow this.

Back on topic now.

I desperately want more upstream to the point I am considering taking a second ADSL2 connection to get it. Stupid telecom wont do annex M which would go a long way to sorting out the whole internet chokes because I am uploading something problem.

I have been looking into getting VDSL2 at home for a while, and found these providers:

TelstraClear - quite pricey and wont give service if you are off a Telecom cabinet
WorldNet - haven't called them and probably wouldn't
Actrix - I have been emailing them about this product have received excellent service, currently top of my list

Prices are a LOT more expensive than ADSL2+.  Actrix will provision the service to my house but I haven't made the final decision about going VDSL2 or Vodafone's naked ADSL2.

There is another but I cannot remember or find them, @Zeon?

(Edit - fixed spelling, it's too early for me!)

timbosan: Is the pricing confidential or are you able to post it here or in a PM (Indicative is fine)
