I believe 90% refers to the numbers of customers within EUBA coverage.

sbiddle: I believe 90% refers to the numbers of customers within EUBA coverage.

That makes sense; I was wondering what the percentage was there.

Anyway, I'm off to bed... I know it's early but curling up with a book is one of my favourite things about winter :)

you are not going to get speeds much faster than you currently have unless chorus install a new cabinet closer to you or run fiber to your area. But as others have said that looks rather unlikely.

this is like the 4th thread you have started regarding your speed in the last week. unfortunately with where you live you really have no simple/cheap options to get faster internet speed

Well I'm not really after faster speeds. I was just wondering where Boost HD would be available to see if maybe this would affect me and it doesn't.

I've given up on getting faster internet where i live.

Maybe us city dwellers can start threads on the cost of land per half acre compared to the country :P

Firebreaker Think if you had to pay the price / cost to get the actual broadband delivered you have now, Your monthly invoice would sky rocket only the TSO keeps it down

Pretty much anywhere you can get ADSL2+ or VDSL2, but will ultimately still come down to your line speed.




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?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

If I was of age, I would have moved out. 

I can't stand the slow internet. 

However, the community here has been sick of the speeds as well and we have contacted Chorus regrading a community funded upgrade. They'll be contacted me maybe around tomorrow to give me options. Besides we live right next to Glen Eden so I wouldn't call my place fully rural or anything...
