Just had a chat to someone from WorldXchange about my wanting to switch my line rental and tolls to Xnet/WorldXchange. Apparently this is something that isn't possible at the moment, but is being worked on. I guess the complexity is that my broadband is currently with Xnet, while my tolls and line rental are with Slingshot. I'm now looking to have everything under Xnet, so I can essentially have 2 phone lines (1 VFX, 1 analogue). Can someone give me an eta as to when this is liekly to be possible? The lady on the phone said it would be soon but couldn't give an exact date.

Xnet do not have an analogue (PSTN) line option. So it would be naked DSL + 2 times VFX lines (Xnet Fusion). The next closest would be to move your Slingshot PSTN line back to Telecom, then have Xnet be your toll provider.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 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.

Welcome to Geekzone. I would go along with what coffeebarron has said get Xnet fusion (VFX and naked DSL) but have 2 VFX lines as you can get your analogue phone number ported to one of the VFX phones and then you could have a VFX number for the second line.

Not quite correct. I know for business you can change your fixed line to WxC but it's exactly the same cost as Telecom so there's no point.

Not sure if this is possible for res connections.
