I have two discrete 'telephone' lines in the house.
One line services all the telephones and second line has a single termination point at a phone jack.

With the introduction of a Telecom NZ broadband service I now have the opportunity to 'merge' the two discrete lines and cancel the second line. This would establish a star topology.

I am considering putting in a DSL splitter next to the NID to split Voice and Data at the point of entry.

This means the phones won't need filters at the termination point(s) and the DSL connection using the second discrete line 'should' be as good as it can be quality wise.

Now the question.

What centralised DSL splitter (Voice and Data) should I use and where in NZ would I be able to purchase said DSL Splitter?

Thanks for any advise.

There is only one type of master splitter in NZ - you can pick them up any any good electrical wholesaler, trademe or places online such as cablesdirect.

There were plenty of old model MM3200's going cheap on trademe, these were only ADSL rated whereas the new ones support VDSL also.

Thank you Sbiddle.

I spotted those and couldn't find anything else, so I thought it a good idea to ask just in case I was missing something.
