For those that remember "that" thread a while back.

Recently moved to VDSL in Outram (couldn't justify the extra expense previously).

Speed test results.
45Mb down, 14Mb up.

Apparently getting fibre in a few years too...

We should organise a Outram Geekzone meet up :)




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?

Tim did move out of outram, not outram speed related though.

 

 

 

Feel for the poor guy, fought so hard for outram, and won but isn't there to enjoy the spoils.

 

pretty sure he's on fibre now so that's gotta be better

I admire the community spirit! We gave him a bit of flak for it.

I love to sift through a classic old thread, particularly one the pre-dates my involvement in a forum but 42 pages far exceeds my patience!

Outram has a thread on GZ? The one outside Mosgiel? I don't even know how to pronounce it ...
