But I thought 5G was the answer? 🤣

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Are there any consumer type routers on the market that can support this?

 

 

Nope.

 

 

 

Even in the IT world it's not cheap, Heavily depends on stack your connecting to etc.

 

if providers drop to IPoE rather than PPPoE it becomes reasonably possible with a cheap mikrotik or x86 router build.

 

 

Just found this (overpriced) offering from Asus that comes with a 2.5gig port: https://www.asus.com/nz/Networking/ROG-Rapture-GT-AX11000/

That's Sir Peter Jackson (Park Place Post, Weta Digital, etc.) looked after

 

I'm assuming the Johnsonville extension is for @Freitasm? ;-)

Unfortunately I was mentioned as a tester and had a few phone calls with @2degreescare but that never happened at the end.

Heh...I see what you did there!

 

Fun fact; my first broadband was a whopping 600kbps over cable (in the UK). It was 600kbps because they wanted to be faster than the main incumbent of the time (BT) who offered 512kbps.  As an upgrade from a 56kbps modem it was luxury!

mine was 128k and we paid by the mb for the bandwidth we used, fortunately me and my cousin had no idea what were were doing on the internet and just used it to play quake 1 multiplayer and chat on icq so it never really amounted to much 

 

We eventually upgraded to a product called jetstream or jetstart (cant remember) which included something like 500mb of data and then we discovered Napster ;-)

Hopefully we'll see pricing for the other synchronous plans start to trickle down.. be amazing to see 100/20 replaced with 100/100 or 200/200 as the standard entry level.
