Heh I just signed up for ultra vdsl and my ISP (Telecom) told me that they need to send in a technician to install splitters. (He will come on the 27th)

However, just received a txt saying that my upgrade shall be completed within the next 48 hours... What does that mean???

I will have vdsl but wont be able to enjoy it till next week!? May seem minor but was wondering what the fuss was about a tiny little splitter box. Ive been using adsl without a splitter fine :(

Master splitter will make sure you have a stable VDSL connection and any issues with house wiring will be isolated from your from the VDSL connection
