Hi all

I have joined telstra one and a half month ago but ohh well they never come to my house and install the internet.. Now I am thinking of joing a broadband with the other companies, but I am not quite sure which company should I go with.

Also how can I know how far away my house is to the local exchange? I am at Mt.Vic Wellington...

Can anyone helps me with this.

Seems odd that Telstra clear would not want an new sub and turn up. I guess you have phoned them repeatdly. There internet service is one of the better.

As for ADSL options, I would presume all the MtVic lines are connected to a local switch in the Courtenay Place exchange (which is also a central/tandem containment) This exchange is more or less on corner of Cambridge terrace and Courtenay Pl. As such I doubt any Mt Vic subscriber would have more than 1.5km -2km of cable in tow. So ADSL should work just fine with 6-7Mb/s easily acheivable.

As for ISP's there are good things said about Xnet.
