I have moved from ADSL to VDSL on VF here in Auckland CBD.

I can see on "recent changes" my account package now states VDSL, so my question is now what? Do VF send me out a VDSL capable router and away we go?

My experience was with Spark and not Vodafone, but several days after booking VDSL online with no response, I phoned and found their online form had not worked.  It was about three working days later that a Chorus tech came round to install the dedicated cable and splitter.  The new modem arrived the day after the phone call.

a side note is everything seems to go 'faster' for a couple weeks then you'll hardly notice it anymore (until you go back to ADSL2)

UPDATE:

So the Sign Up Tracker keeps stating, complete (stage 3) then back to Pending Check.
Spoke to some guy in customer services, who said I need to be xferred to Technical Support? Technical Support on what? I don't have anything. I spent 10 mins on hold and hung up...

Anyway, I saw Chorus guy installing Fibre the other day, he said it would be ready to hook up to individual apartments by next week (I know xmas lay time)... do I dare phone customer services and ask about UFB install and could I be booked it for when ever its available... 

cheers
