Switched to Vodafone's Red network a couple of weeks ago after hearing my neighbor received much faster speeds compared to my Telecom totalhome 40GB broadband package. I'm supposed to have max up and down on Telecom ADSL2+, but it turned out that Vodafone can do much better speeds on the same line.
I'm connected to the Exchange in Birkenhead and am glad i made the switch. From around 6 MB/s i'm now on 11,5 MB/s on Vodafone naked DSL. Nothing changed in my setup, using the same modem and wiring didn't change. I'm surprised and a little disappointed about the gear or setup Telecom is using in that exchange.
