Sideface: VF cable is a much better option since they increased their data caps - the Entertain packages give a choice of two speeds - 50/2Mbps and 130/10Mbps - and three data caps - 80, 150 and 500GB.
I think it will be a long time before fibre comes to "cable" areas, for obvious financial reasons - why should VF compete with itself?

I know of one cable area in the Wellington region just down the road from me, that I believe have just had UFB installed. I am in a cable area and scheduled to get UFB in 2015-16. I don't think the fac tthat cable is in certain areas has any bearing on UFB. I don't think it should either, since cable internet can only be provided by a single company that owns it. I pressume VF make larger margins on cable, as the infraastructure is already in palce, and they don't have to pay a middle man.

Funny you should say that.

Signed up to Cable today. 
VF said they've 'sorted their gremlins' that everyone has seen recently.

We will see..
