Was talking to folks from Chorus and Snap Internet yesterday while attending Sir Tim Berners-Lee session at Te Papag and we started talking about VDSL and UFB coverage. 

Mark (Snap) asked if we have VDSL coverage here and I checked today:

Just outside it. Obviously can't get it from the back of the property (the little triangle tip) as it's a cliff.

Anyone else having similar kind of situation and want to moan, now's the time ;)

Must be a geekzone curse to be just outside VDSL coverage.

I'm near the end of a street with no VDSL.
Street 100m to the North-West is on a VDSL2 cabinet.
Street 100m to the South-West is on a VDSL2 cabinet.

Don't take the Chorus SAT as Gospel. It's outdated and you may have a really good line or a new cabinet has been built. Ask the ISP to do a prequal check and you will know.
