Had a very nice guy (tho not totally up with the play) come door knocking at the weekend selling a Vodafone Broadband + Home Calling package.  We are currently with Telecom/Xtra and on a 20gig plan and dont make toll calls so apart from a potential saving of a few $'s per month could not see the advantage of going through any potential hassle.  His main selling point seemed to be ADLS2+ (pretty sure we are on ADSL2) but it seems to me Telecom are rolling this out with the cabinets anyway.

Our XTRA plan and connections seems to do everything we need it to do so would there be any real reason to change apart from maybe $16 / month (and I guess there would be a termination fee with Telecom to consider?)

If you would get ADSL2+ with Voda, then almost guarantee you already have ADSL2+ with Telecom.


put your address in here to check

If you want to stay with Telecom it might be worth checking out Totalhome Lite to see if it works out cheaper that what you currently pay.
It would be $105 total cost with either Explorer (your current 20Gb plan) or Big time (the shaped, unlimited data plan)
You also get unlimited calls to one national number (although you say you don't make toll calls)

You looks like our exchanges is already ADSL2+ and the $105 is what we are paying so its all good, and have to say that once we had a few issues sorted out last year the service has been all we could ask for (certainly copes with up to 4 laptops at a time some evenings :D )
