Just live now is the Vodafone VDSL page. Go on, I know you want it...

Adding the press release:


Vodafone today announces VDSL broadband plans – providing three times faster average broadband download speeds* – at no extra cost for the first 12 months.

VDSL (Very-high-bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line) technology uses the same copper phone line as ADSL broadband, but provides a faster connection speed and greater capacity, allowing more users to get online using the same connection, simultaneously.

New and existing Vodafone customers taking VDSL can download files and online content at faster speeds, while paying standard ADSL broadband prices. VDSL Broadband packages with home phone start at $85 per month for 80GB; VDSL Naked broadband plans start at $55 per month for 80GB (Naked price includes discount for On Account mobile customers).

Vodafone Consumer Director, Matt Williams, says Kiwis are data-hungry and want faster broadband at affordable prices.

“We’ve seen a fourfold increase in home broadband data demand over the past four years as customers stream entertainment online, adopt video catch up services and connect multiple devices to the internet – and it’s vital that they have a fast connection.

“Available now to 60% of Kiwi homes, Vodafone VDSL will give customers a real flavour of the significant benefits fibre will bring as the government-led UFB network is rolled out.
Now, more Kiwis can be better connected doing the things they love.”

Williams continues: “It’s the best value deal in the market – three times faster speeds and loads of data at an unbeatable price. No one else offers this great combination for Kiwi consumers!”

Vodafone VDSL is available as part of Vodafone Red Home – a complete home communications package offering TV, superfast broadband and home calling options, all in one plan, with one bill.

Tried 3 different Hamilton addresses in 3 different suburbs and all say ADSL service only available. Address checker does not seems right as it's Chorus product which should be available everywhere in the country providing VDSL is available for that line which all these 3 site's have had in the past or can get it with other ISP's.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Just tried looking for these addresses again and VDSL service is now shown as available. Going to upgrade 2 businesses from current Vodafone ADSL to Vodafone VDSL connections. They will bless me along with Crashplan backup speeds.

Edit - Do Vodafone also provide a master splitter install for VDSL connections like all the other ISP's Snap, Telecom etc are providing free of charge providing you go on contract? Website states standard VDSL install only.

So is Master Splitter included in the VDSL install for free of charge on the standard 12 month contract with Vodafone?
