i'm off the exchange, too far out for VDSL, with no sign of UFB for 3+ years, and no more cabinets due. Know of around 10 others in the same position and trying to find out how many more there are... many people in the area work in IT, Tech, or in jobs that depend on IT, so are likely to be buyers for VDSL/UFB.
Meanwhile, on topic: how do you check your exchange?
I'm in morningside/western springs and know from past checks that I'm in VDSL area. Think its Mt Albert exchange now that I think about it... Would love to pay the extra, but install costs just enough of a barrier together with one income/family budget issue, for the time being.
Well I just typed the addresses of 4 clients in Mt Eden (Near Mt Eden Road) none of them show VDSL, though I know there IS VDSL around there, as I had a client nearly switch mid last year. Turned out they were inches from availability.
