Point 1: I was really astounded to hear this. Can it be true that in 2010 in urban centres in NZ it is impossible to supply adsl to all households? Could another isp supply an adsl service (maybe it's just xnet that have problems - although that's not what they told me)?
Point 2: What options do I then have to get broadband, if I can't get adsl? I think there are satellite services, and also something called "eol" - anyone have any experience with these, or other ideas?
