Call Vodafone directly and they will take you through the process of getting connected.

You would never call Chorus as you are not a customer of Chorus

This is probably the RBI wireless product, else you would already be getting those speeds (unless you have poor wiring)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

If you are in an area that has been cabinetised you should automatically be switched over to the cabinet. This may occur some time after the cabinet has been installed though. In my case I think it was about a month after the cabinet was installed that we were changed over from being supplied dsl from the exchange to dsl from the cabinet. If I recall correctly there was also a short transition where we went from adsl1 at the cabinet before we got switched to adsl2. This all happened (exchange adsl -> cabinet adsl -> cabinet adsl2) without any intervention on my part.

That still seems quite slow. Are you a long way from the cabinet?

Oratia is kinda rural, it was a shock though coming from my old house with a 16mbps connection.
