Just wondering if anyone knows whats involved to connect a new house, if its something that telecom has to wire in before getting VFX or something someone with a bit of knowhow can do.
We currently have woosh and my year is up next month and looking for a good speed boost. Tossing up between Xnet and Telstra cable here in Chch.
Telstra offer free connections according to their site where as by the looks Xnet will cost me to connect up through telecom and also the cost of a ATA.

Any suggestions?

Best of both worlds: sign up for Cable with no phone line, then sign up for VFX only.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
