Hi,

 

 

 

I was wondering if those with experience could recommend a brand/make/model of DSL Master Filter (aka Splitter) for a VDSL 2 connection, and where to buy it from.

 

I am comfortable wiring it myself but not sure if the ones on Trade Me are any good.  The house internal wiring is already CAT5e for phone line from the demark and I will be wiring the Master Filter in about 2m from the demark.

 

I have read sbiddles post as well http://www.geekzone.co.nz/sbiddle/8357

 

 

 

I have not decided which ISP I will move to yet (currently Flip using ADSL2+), but with Flip's terrible customer service I can tell you I won't be staying with them.  Planning to get a ZyXEL P870 VDSL2 modem as I want something that can just bridge the VDSL connection to my firewall, no smart stuff.

 

 

 

Cheers,

 

 

 

MC

I used a Dynamix one that I got off TradeMe for about 30 bucks until recently. It worked perfectly well on ADSL2. I've only removed it because we've got UFB now.

I can supply including courier NZ wide for $25
PM me if interested.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Splitters aren't anything special. If one was made by Lada and the other by Aston Martin they would still be the same thing.
