InstallerUFB:BigPipeNZ:bales: amaster splitter and cat 5 is mandatory for vdsl .
No it isn't, although it is recommended.
For A Chorus provided VDSL install - A xDSL Master Spliter instalation and Cat5E/Cat6 cable (actualy now a hybrid cable -Cat5e + 2 Fibre) is mandatory to be installed by the installer at the time of installation. Existing installed cables such as 2pr Homelan or 3 pr twisted 6way can be used if the installation of new cables are not possible due to building construction issues.
wierd. We've had quite a few VDSL 'connection only' in the last few weeks. No wiring requested, or installed. All working fine.
