zaphodalive:  <snip> ... so I think I'll be signing with Bigpipe.  They've advertised free install on daily-deal websites lately for VDSL so I think I'll go with that. <snip> 

 

Just remember that Bigpipe do NOT provide a master filter or modem with VDSL installs.

 

 

Yeah I've still got my Fritz Box from when I had Snap VDSL, and don't need a master splitter as we have no phones running off the line.

No alarms? Single line with no other points?

 

Anyway, requested cancellation of Vodafone cable service last week and technician is booked to attend tomorrow to disconnect cable from pole.

Will you still have a back-up connection?

That's what 4G is right?

We took fibre with 2degrees so our backup DSL account is gone now. If needed will use mobile data. Install took about 90 minutes, thanks to being an aerial drop instead of digging...

 

We also cancelled our landline numbers (VFX in New Zealand and Mynetfone in Australia) as we were not getting any phone calls anymore on those numbers. Either mobile or Skype. All done we will save something around $50 a month with these changes. And have 200/20 service.

 

I was cleaning up the home office here and came across the letter from TelstraClear offering the 100/10 Mbps service trial before launch. Good times.

A letter? How retro.

 

Goes to show how little they have done as far as upgrades if those speeds were offered on a telstra clear letter, since it has been vodafone for quite a while now, and they still only offer 10 meg up.

Heh, I have one of those somewhere too smile

 

I get the odd visit from Vodafone door-to-door salesmen trying to get me to join their broadband service. Not in a million years.

I wish I had managed to get onto Chello before it went. All that amazing speed when 128Kbps was all the rage.

Maybe they're proactively trying to prevent what happened in Wellington happening in Christchurch?

but shouldn't you fix the problem where there is one before trying to make sure it doesn't happen anywhere else?

No, the best approach would be to do both. But you are assuming that work in Christchurch is being done at the expense of work in Wellington, an assumption you're not in a position to make.

Do you have Vodafone cable in Island Bay?

but then why is there no details of work going on in Wellington?? its obvious from the extent of this thread there has been a huge lack of resources or what looks like urgency to fix all the issues going on here.

 

Do you have Vodafone cable in Island Bay? whats that got to do with anything?
