Hi,

I am currently on Orcons 'Platinum' LLU ADSL2+ service. I wish to change providers & like the look of XNETs plans, and them seem to get a good rap on this forum. However, what do I do about my phone line that Orcon now has? I'd prefer not to go back to Telecom, is there a cheaper, better alternative ? As I have phones scattered about the house both upstairs & downstairs, I don't think naked broadband will be suitable.

Cheers

Why not naked with a VFX line??
Cabling can be easily re-wired so that your "phones scattered" can all conect on the VFX line.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
