sbiddle: Better in what respect?
There are significant differences in the offerings from all 3 providers. Both Orcon and Vodafone also offer naked circuits on their ULL gear and Telecom don't.
eXDee: One thing that you have to watch on the Orcon and Vodafone LLU offerings is that they decrease the port SNR to around 6-7. This is what helps increase the sync rate, but on a dodgy line it can also decrease stability and cause disconnections. In this case i think you should be able to ring up and have it increased slightly, paul might be able to confirm for vf.
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.

The answer probably depends very heavily on where you live.
If you live close to an exchange, then it'll be down to which ISP is offering the best national/international bandwidth.
If you are in a cabinetised area then you are more likely to be better on a Telecom Wholesale'd service as I don't believe most of the smaller ISPs are putting their equipment into the cabinets yet ... that said I'm not sure Chorus offers sub-loop unbundling yet. Even when they do, there is the question of whether the smaller ISPs are going to have enough scale to make an investment in a cabinet based DSLAM economic ...
