I'm currently on a Conklin where I am for internet access:

Peak time:



Offpeak:



I am normally on a 200/200 connection, I now feel your pain and now congrat you on the win. I looked at the Chorus maps and it seems they have not been updated with a timeframe - I would assume it'll be very soon seeing they felt the need to make a full announcement, time will tell I suppose!

Kirwee is way more deserving, I get the feeling Timbo was just saturating his upstream bandwidth and skewing the tests as when I was there I could not find any evidence of congestion at all.

Congratulations Guys!!   I have not heard anything about the cabinet where I live but presume we wont be part of the 20 areas getting upgraded.  We have to go through the processes found here.

Chorusnz: Hi everyone, here is our media release about the upgrades to the Kirwee exchange area :  https://www.chorus.co.nz/better-broadband-coming-to-kirwee  ^JD 

Do we get a list of the other 19 exchanges? Please, pretty please, with a master filter on top :)





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Sadly, the speeds above are about double what we get in Kirwee (peak) and consistent with off peak speeds. Our latency is about double (off peak) and 200 - 500ms (peak).

Thankfully this will come to an end in a few short months and internet speeds will allow businesses to grow and families to enjoy luxuries like Skype and You Tube.....I go to work to watch you tube presently!

Do you know if end of June is likely date or will this possibly be earlier? I've guessed end of June is long date to cover delays in sourcing parts, scheduling provisioning etc.

considering as far as i can see there is no actual date set, ild say June wouldnt be likely.

Upgrades take time..

I would hazard a guess it would all be sorted by Christmas, at the latest.
