I live in a rural area (Te Kowhai) and our house is really close to the TKW/A exchange. On a good day I'll get 4 Mb/s down but at night that can drop to < 1 Mb/s.
A couple of years ago FX Networks laid fibre down our road as one of the main Hamilton/Auckland loops. I know I can't connect directly to that, but it seems a waste to have such poor service considering the cabinet is sitting right on top of the fibre.
Can anyone give me any insight into any plans to upgrade the TKW/A exchange or if I should be getting better service from it? I've tried asking Chorus and my ISP (Snap, previously Telecom) directly and haven't had a response. From Chorus' website it's currently a PCM 24 RU Mini Cabinet and has no notification date. It looks like there are still 345 of this type of cabinet around the country (out of 6972 in total).
Thanks for any help.
