So I've now been swapped (my ADSL connection) to the Vodafone Red network.

What does this give me over and above what I had before?

Vodafone have more control over your line. One less factor out of VF control for any issues that might happen plus If your line is good enough they can squeeze a few extra Mbs sync by changing your profile.

Only faster if you have a master filter. Maybe you will win a free install at the Geekzone get together :)




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?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

And faster when applied a 6dB SNR margin with no interleaving!

Better hope you have a master filter with that SNR - if you have an old horrible wiring setup that'll be no fun!

I had a customer who was on Telecom getting 5Mbps. Moved to Vodafone Red and speed dropped to 2Mbps. After master filter install, 17Mbps!
6db is great on a good line, but on a bad line it's seriously bad.
