Hi,

 

 

 

I am looking to get a 2nd naked vdsl connection for summer.

 

 

 

A) I am looking for a no term provider for unlimited vdsl recommendations (

 

     rural southisland) looking for a 6 month connection

 

B) I already have a spare pair to the master jack which is terminated in the jack but not at the etp (grey roadside pedestal) will i get hit with a chorus            wiring charge to liven up the second line.

 

 

 

Thanks

 

 

 

Jeremy

Provided the records for your address still show evidence that a second line has been connected at the property before, there should be no need to pay a network connection fee, so only a reconnection fee would be payable (in Spark's case it's $63, although this is often waived during promotions). Spark charge a $99 fee to connect VDSL on no contract.

 

If you flick me the address in a PM, I am happy to have a look at the network records for that address.

I use Inspire who offer a no contract option if you pay the install fee and supply your own hardware. There are several ISP's who do this so look around.

 

Keep in mind "no contract" still usually means 30 days notice.

One thing I noticed with VDSL on a 4 core wire (2 pairs..) is that when one line Sync's it will take the other out and will fight each other a little bit. Vectoring should sort this issue and all the other goodies!
So, you may need to raise the SNR on your devices otherwise you may have 2 VDSL lines equal to 1 originally.

Took awhile to find a spare pair, but chorus connected up my second line, with no charge at all.
