I'm in Mt Wellington, acording to the rollout plan our exchange should have been compleated in August. I have an ADSL2+ modem but I only get 2.5Mbps ADSL1. It won't sync at ADSL2+ because I'm too far from the exchange?

What does your router say? If it's on an ADSL2+ enabled profile it'll say so. Somewhere there it should have "DSL Modulation Mode" or similar, and it'll either say ADSL or ADSL2+.

Got it in one. 3.5km is the approx limit for ADSL2+ with a significant drop in speed anywhere above 2km. At 2.5Mbps id guess you're 3-4k?

ADSL2+ has a greater reach than ADSL1 however there will be pretty much no speed difference, do get any speed increase you need to be under 3km away from the exchange. Theres some helpful graphs somewhere. google "adsl2+ single distance raito"
