So, yeah as per the title.
I live on a lifestyle block property in Paremoremo which is about 5-10 minutes drive out of Albany in Auckland. We're currently on Spark ADSL getting an unreliable 10Mb Down/1mb Up connection that's had a few faults in the last few years.
UFB did not come up our street, and the closest it went was down the main road which which is about 700-800m away. Spark's address checker says we can get VDSL, but I know that we are too far from the cabinet to enjoy any VDSL speeds. The tech who tried to install it years back failed to stand up the service and recommended we down-grade to ADSL for a more reliable connection.
After some recent faults with our DSL dropping, I've become more tired of our poor internet performance which is not great if my partner and I both want to use internet at the same time. My son will be old enough in a couple of years to want to stream things himself so it's going to get worse if we're all trying to use the internet at the same time.
Spark mobile coverage is terrible at our location, and doesn't appear to support Wireless there. My mobile is through Vodafone, and on their site it looks like they support 3G Mobile or possibly 4G with an aerial but I have no idea how reliable or fast that would be for our internet use. $165 for 200GB also seems a bit over priced if the connection is poor.
Can anyone make any recommendations for a better service, other than moving house?
