Any visible timeframe for activation ?
Currently none. still only trials. @chorusnz may be able to advise more :)
To quote chorus.
We’re consulting with the industry, via the TCF, on the implementation of VDSL vectoring and G.INP. We’ve shared the results of the pilot on active VDSL lines in Ethernet DSLAMs, within a Christchurch non-fibre area.
While the pilot tests confirmed our expected improvements, we need to address the higher than expected number of incompatible modems before we roll out VDSL vectoring to all Ethernet DSLAMs in areas without our fibre. This number may simply be the percentage of older or non-standard modems in network, but we need to determine better methods of minimising end user impact. We are working with affected RSPs individually and at TCF on identifying in compatible modems before seeking approval to proceed with roll out. This should be done early next year.
'early next year', has since past, and obviously been revised...
