Does WxC have any plans ?
...Just an fyi, you refer to "one of my two local cabinets", you dont get a choice between cabinets; if your one is the one without vdsl, then no vdsl for you unforch

I guess I'll have to wait for TCNZ to update their vdsl coverage maps and extend reach, meanwhile I have no choice to have adsl2+ at 10Mbit down/1Mbit up [thats my sync rates]
All that said most of my suburb will be in vdsl reach so I guess if WxC have no vdsl plans they will loose customers ?
VDSL2 is only going to be offered to people less than 1km away from the exchange/cabinet which equates to those getting ~16-24meg off ADSL2+. Assuming you have already been upgraded to a cabinet then you wont be getting VDSL2 because you are too far away from the cabinet (10meg suggests you are quite a distance from the cabinet or exchange, or your wiring is of bad quality).
Im not aware of any ISPs that are currently selling vdsl to residential customers, however plenty are doing closed trials - so its not a problem with WxC. They seem pretty adaptive so I would expect them to be one of the first to offer it
I dont think there has been any confirmation of where the prices will lie, but I would guess $10-20 extra per month
