We have recently moved into our new (very old) house in the South Island, and signed up for Unlimited VDSL.
We received the router etc and it came with a DSL splitter, an ADSL cable and a VDSL cable (and a bunch of network cables)
We won't be getting a home line, so the only thing connecting to the phone jack is the router.
The house only has 1 working old-fashioned phone jack, there is a second one but it's not connected.
The ETP outside does not have a cover so is exposed to the elements, and the wiring inside looks to be attached by twisting 2 exposed wires together.
I would really like to make the most of the VDSL, which would only work at ADSL speeds with my current setup.
My Google-fu ain't all that and I stumbled upon several different "answers" to my questions, so I'm looking for some clarity:
Does Chorus come out to update old ETPs like ours free of charge?
If so, do I arrange this or do I leave that up to my new ISP to communicate with Chorus?
And lastly, when connecting the router, I can just leave the splitter in the box since I won't be connecting a landline?
Thanks in advance :)
If anything is unclear please let me know.
