Orcon plan on skipping a generation or two in technology and plan on introducing VDSL2 once the LLU situation has been sorted...

It can provide speeds of up to 100mb up and down, within 500m of the exchange, 50mb up and down within 1km, and from 2km the speeds are the same as ADSL2, which I think is around 16mb...

While this sounds fantastic, my only question is this...

Having seen the problems happening right now with ADSL due to being 'unleashed', and while this may be using new technology, arent we just going to see the same problems, as they are still going to be using the old copper network that is currently chocked and struggling as it is???

That will suck on telecoms old copper - I think they are kidding themselves if they think it will work without crosstalking to every other pair in the bundle
