I wonder if anyone can help me on this, i want to know when this will come to Christchurch.

I have been informed by Chorus the my phone exchange is ADSL2+ yet VF do not offer the service, they say they have to wait for it be un-bundled ?

I am a bit confused on this and want to know when ADSL2+ will be availablle in my area no one seems to have an anser apart from some time nexy year, so what is the problem if the exchange is ready for the product ??

thank

Bernard

This INFO guessing would still be covered by NDA

They still have to get around to putting their gear in the exchanges?

beenz: What is NDA ?


NDA refers to information that is covered by a Non Disclosure Agreement, signed by parties on a contract or deal.

I had ADSL2 when I was with Orcon here in Christchurch. Switched to Vodafone due to performance issues and only had ADSL.

Switched again to Snap due to even worse performance issues, have my ADSL2 back and very good speeds.

So it may be that it is more a policy decision for Vodeavone not to offer ADSL2.

That's pretty weird. Since there is no Red network in Christchurch yet regardless of the provider you'll be on the same TCNZ DSLAM. Remapping between providers doesn't normaly change your wiring in the exchange. Basically - you should be getting exactly the same sync speeds on all three of them. I'm not aware of any limits imposed by either TCNZ or VF, unless you were on a limited plan with one provider and not the others.
