Hey all,


I'm moving into our new home on Monday 11th December.


VDSL to be enabled this week. I'd like to install get a master splitter installed (3 actually - 1 in the office, 1 in the study, then while I'm at it I may as well get 1 for the main house too)


Once installed I'm assuming the existing phone line will be cabled to the splitter, but I'd need a new connection point for broadband - that correct?


Looking for someone that can install this for me - Whangaparaoa, Auckland.

You can only have one master splitter per phone line, not three. It gives a single xDSL outlet to plug a modem into from that phone line. Do you have 3 separate lines that need doing?

Are you running a sweatshop call center there or something? Or else a boarding house? Even when I was full of flatmates here we only had at the most 3 active DSL connections into the place ;)

Why would a house need/want three VDSL2 connections?? Why not data cable the house (maybe you forgot this part) and have one VDSL modem in central location.


Note: Master/splitter filter is typically installed at external termination point not in office etc.

Home study & main living area (will try to run structured cabling from downstairs study to the rest of the house) + rental apartment + office for onsite boarding cattery


I certainly need a separate VDSL for the business. One of the VDSL lines is already active an only getting 18mb/s - hoping to increase that with the splitter. but if I'm stuck with low speeds I may run separate VDSL connections to the study & the lounge - so that my wife's netflix doesn't interfere with the other line that my son & I will be using for gaming.


Only till April 2019 when fibre arrives. Can't wait for that since I've been enjoying 200mb/s fibre at our current home, big drop down to less than a 10th of that :-(
