It seems to me as though Wellington has been left in the lurch a little bit, 2019 is too long to wait for faster broadband. I live only a few km's away from the CBD in Karori and have excruciatingly slow and inconsistent adsl, whereas a friend of mine is moving to the Wairapa and despite having a 90 minute commute to the city will be on a fiber connection. I was supposed to get VDSL but the line is too noisy, I'm also marginally too far away from Vodafones cable network (down a private road) so I'm stuck with ADSL.
I've written to our Local MP Grant Robertson asking him to raise our concerns with the government and put pressure on Chorus to accelerate the roll out in Wellington. In the probable event that they ignore that request I have also asked him to put pressure on Chorus to resume installing VDSL in the concerned suburbs as a stop gap measure.
I'm sure both these requests will be ignored, but putting pressure on does help so please email, tweet, or call grant's office and let them know that its a concern for Wellingtonians, its already putting us at a competitive disadvantage.
