emailed my isp orcon to find out how much will cost me to install an Adsl splitter

got reply,

"Currently there are two kinds of splitter that we can install, the cost and kind of splitter you would require would depend on what area you are currently in.

The cost of an ADSL2+ splitter (for use in areas where Orcon has unbundled new high-speed services) is $249.00
The cost of a standard ADSL spitter for all other areas is $149.00"

i konw the $149 one is the one everyone get, but i m never heard an ADSL2+ splitter, what's the different? i m on ADSL2+ now, should i just get a normal adsl spitter or an $249 ADSL2+ spitter???

Hi, firstly welcome to Geekzone, secondly, there is no real differnce between the two other than some filters are not rated at ADSL2+ frequencies. The standard installed filter that Telecom use (MM3200B) are ADSL2+ rated so I dont know what Orcon are on about. That said they may have some filter that is more suited to match the line impedances of their Nokia/Seimens DSLAMS, but I would be very surprised.

Telecom and most telephone contractors charge around $150 to install a central filter, personally $249 seems a bit steep. Would be interested to here exactly what Orcon are installing for that figure.

That's a ripoff imo, our telecom one (well, same model as telecom one) that we installed ourserves (simple procedure - not even soldering) only costs like $80 from a trade store i think.
It works fine with our ADSL2+ cabinet.

Thanks a lot guys

But anyway, i will call orcon help desk and try to find out what the hell is the ADSL2+ splitter and the model number.
