Guys,

I have VF offering me their Red Network ADSL2+. I am off the BD exchange on the North Shore and about 2.5 clicks away. I currently get about 4.5MB D/L on a good day. The plan looks good from what I can see but I wanted to have more confidence in the speed expectation. ANy thoughts or guidance? Cheers. Cliff

I think it's time for my medication now. Nurse? Nurse!

Right tempting I must say, but with a distance of 2+ clicks from BD exchange I am not entirely confident of any speed increase.

I was on a non LLU plan with about a 4.5Mb connection. Switched to orcon LLU and increased to 7Mb. This is on the glenfield exchange. I'm sure you will see a good increase.

Thanks for that.

I not after the free one. Ultimate for me but still saves me 40-50 bucks a month with more download capacity. What exchange you off simon14 ? And how far from the switch? Cheers.

Drop the $99 connection fee and have a standard 12 month contract and I would switch :) (and no I dont want the free internet deal/$30 discount as I dont want to be stuck with the toll package for a year)

Last time I looked at unbundled dsl, you lost the choice of PSTN and the toll provider for the PSTN component and were limited to the DSL provider.

If you are using telecom freedom that would be a big disincentive to moving over.
