According to and ISP's address checkers there is no VDSL available in Tauranga at all - is this correct?

Not sure how you got that result. Chorus maps shows oodles of VDSL through out Tauranga.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
