What is the max speed of VDSL2 in NZ?

Telecom are stating the max speeds are up to 70mbps down and 10mbps up, however Worldnet say the max is 55mbps down and 30mbps up.

Wikipedia says VDSL2 can be 100mbps down and up.

Are you asking the maximum speed of VDSL2 as a technology or the maximum speed available on a Chorus connection? Both have different answers, the answers to which you've mentioned in your question.

Max speeds on Chorus network and my question included two different answers.

Worldnet say up to 30mbps upload whereby Telecom are saying up to 10mbps.

What can we expect?

Thanks for confirming - looks like Worldnet should update their website.

You'll need to be fairly close to your cabinet to have a chance of over 50+ down though.

Is VDSL similar to ADSL whereby download sync rates are impacted by distance before upload sync rates are?

Worldnet also promote it in some of their graphics/promotionsas 55MB/10MB, When it is Mb. That's a factor of 8 difference. Then they say it's up to 5x faster upstream than ADSL2+. ADSL2+ is capped at 1.4Mbps upstream. 1.4 * 5 = 7, not 30.
