It said on the maps that the cabnets may be done earlier. I really hope mine gets done early as it is meant to be done October next year!!!

What I find annoying is that we were one of the first broadband customers in our area (according to my dad) and we will be one of the last areas in our town to get ADSL2+ (and they try to look after their loyal customers!). We had it back in the days when it was called Jetstream and all of the usernames were like "xtr12345@jetstream.xtra.co.nz" or something like that.

I am not supposed to have ADSL2+ until Jan next year, but got it a month ago. So it looks like they may be ahead of schedule a bit. Much better early than late :)

hmmmm maybe the govt has finally grown a pair and told Telecom to get a move on who knows but atleast i'll finally be able to get the speed i'm paying for instead of lingering around 1.7~2.5mbps sync rate specially when my 48~49db attenuation says i should be getting closer to 5mbps

Telecom have been trying to under-promise and over-deliver.
Makes them look good.

Check out this page on the chorus website and download the spreadsheet called Cabinet Migration Schedule. It is the latest and most up to date list of when cabinets will and have been completed.
