At my new place I was told that I could not get ADSL2 connection because although the exchange had been upgraded the local cabinet had not been and there was not a due time for that to happen at the moment.
first question is: is there a website that i can check when the local cabinet will be upgraded by Orcon or vodafone like you can do on the telecom website: http://telecomwholesale.co.nz/maps
second question is if it is not going to be done for a long time then it looks like I will be changing providers as I am also not happy about how Orcon handled my move (took 3 weeks not including a week after i first called them because they apparently have no record of me calling them). so is there another company that anyone could recommend that will give me the best speeds for fairly cheap.
I am a uni student and generally use about 50GB a month in download.
Any help from anyone would be great
also incase anyone has a way of finding out if i can get adsl2 at my place my address is 78 carlisle rd, browns bay
