When will Vodafone users on 30/10 low end fibre get the free upgrade that Chorus announced the other day?

 

They said it will get upped to 50mbit download but its not been mentioned if the upload will get a boost as well?

The upload was not mentioned cause it's not changing, From the media release it was very clear that it was download only, So not even sure why you are even asking about the upload,

 

The Media release also advises time frames and Chorus is working with all Retail service providers

Quote direct from the media release

 

Chorus says it expects the move to complete early in the New Year

I'm not familiar with what the terms are for existing VF fibre customers but right now they are offering a contract deal where you get 100 down for the price of 30 down.

Might be worth looking into.

 

 





Please note: I have a professional bias towards Vodafone.

Go Hawks!

Existing customers won't get that deal, I asked about getting the deal, but because I'm on a contract with a "special" already I cannot get it.

 

I did try to get some information out of Vodafone on how to upgrade to the 100 speed, but managed to get no information (other than being told I can't get it for free).

10mbit up is a little on the slow side compared to vdsl. I thought they may have aligned it to 50/20. Isn't the next  plan up 100/20?

So then move a plan that offers faster upload,

I never mentioned anything about my own plan. I was just suggesting that if they move to a new fibre baseline , that 50/20 makes more sense than 50/10 when you have users on vdsl connections doing better than 50/10. Even the press release points out other fibre providers are already offering a 50/20 service

 

Low end fibre should be at least higher spec than what you get on a standard vdsl connection

Also ISP's are going to have to build QoS profiles for this plan, so some people may not get 50/10 on day one.
