He was me innocently thinking that Peter Reader was an asexual time traveling flat earther from 2049. I have to now revisit my entire perspective of life, the world, the universe.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 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

For those who don't know, Peter worked for Telecom/Spark and Reader worked for Vodafone. We decided to create a robot to automatically post some basic stuff about ADSL/line filters/speeds and came up with the name @PeterReader.

 

We even had a "PeterReader" made of shoebox and some electronics that was present in some of the Auckland real life meetups.

 

You can still see @PeterReader around - in the welcome threads and when Trade Me is mentioned...

And of course, Voda marketed on being not telecom, but over the years they have become so big and unwieldy they are the new telecom, while spark is.... a company doing things
