johnr: Narrow down next to Glen Eden?


Hmm?


So you don't live in Glen Eden correct?


Not anymore. Would live to get my 15-18mbps ADSL2+ line back....


by what you have said however, people are curious as to where your talking about.

ok, so a spot of fishing... and we have it..

we are talking about Oratia, Auckland yes?

honestly, i wouldnt say coverage is all that bad there.. sure theres not a heap of VDSL coverage, but a sizeable amount is within 10mbit.. and pretty close.

Indeed. Which is why I'm hoping I can use the "but I need to be closer to university" excuse to get out of there.

your really not that far from uni.


i used to live in the waitaks, try travelling to uni from there. most days, your talking 8$ each way on the train, plus an hours trip on said train. and that doesnt include transport there and back from stations etc..


your no further out than i am really. and its half the distance to get into town.

He said the housing market is going insane and he wants to make it a bit easy on me. I have a really good relation with my parents so that helps. I think if he brought the house I would just pay some rent and internet.
