Wow, now that would be neat!

My understanding is the SDP rollout starts next month, inititally for homes who will be part of the first wave of Telecom VoIP customers using RGW's.

Are the current staff any better trained than the old staff that installed the existing wiring :)

What is the new delivery point, is it some sort of active demarcation?

Looks like it will solve the emergency telephone 'power problem' of using fibre/ADSL+VoIP solutions which go dark when the power goes out. It says it's only power for ethernet, but supports copper devices. I assume this is worded incorrectly(?) and means it will supply POTS power to the copper lines in the house from the inbuilt battery so you can still call 111 in a power outage.

I wonder if they have inbuild battery failure monitoring and we will see the Chorus replacing all the batteries enmass 3 years from now :-)




Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

This looks very interesting! So it is basically a cabinet which your current copper will run into and in the future your fibre?

I would love to know if I could pay to have my copper connection to the exchange upgraded or even checked.

Bung: Are the current staff any better trained than the old staff that installed the existing wiring :)

I think it's unfair to blame old staff who installed wiring. Issues exist for a number of reasons - poor installation in only one of them. Corrosion in jackpoints is probably one of the biggest, in part due to our damp homes. Wiring in series is also a significant issues, but the reality is Telecom haven't recommended this for well over 10 years and yet it's still the standard method of installation for both DIY and many eans who know no better.

Wiring from the exchange to houses is typically fairly good, it's in the home where things typically fall apart.

Yes "trained" is the wrong word, it's probably the time allowed per job.

Regarding corrosion, the BT jack for all its faults was an attempt to get a more reliable jack than the US one. Out of commercial environments the RJ type are also subject to corrosion. In the US there were some trials where the jack was filled with a jelly like the wire joiners. It will be interesting to see how they survive here.

Modern jackpoints are a lot better than old ones.

Spokesman Brett Jackson said Chorus would install a "service delivery point" with high-speed internet (Cat5e) cabling for about $200. Customers would order the work to be done through their internet provider.


But also refer to the below.

Chorus has simply failed to consider conventional wireless solutions ..always thinking about cable, relying on a ill-conceived notion that amplification or boosting broadband signals over existing home old telephone cables as the best to improve household Broadband speeds up and around 10Mb per second, as the alternative option against total or partail Cat5/6 rewiring.

In comparison more widely excepted methodologies such as 802.11g/n wireless providing 24- 54Mbps and the better portability such wifi devices offer absolutely renders the CHORUS solution dead in the water.

In the following recent article CHORUS fails to mention wifi as an option to improve broadband speeds is proof they are not thinking wireless at all.

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/connect/news/article.cfm?c_id=1501833&objectid=10650104

You will notice they do not talk about Wifi?

Why its because they are all Cable Guys !!

The $200 dollars CHORUS wants for this piece of #%^&!!.....its a total joke !! this money would be better spent on installing new Cat 5/6 Cable so home owners can get a Gbbps speed or a Wifi access point at half the price and double the speed.

I think you will find that this device is intended to bypass existing house wiring and provide a CAT5 feed directly to the customers modem from the Point of entry. Existing house wiring can then be fed from the device via the inbuilt splitter.
There is no intention to provide whole house networking for the customer.
Considering the vast majority of slow speeds/ connection issues lie with faulty out of spec internal wiring, I cant help but see this as a benefit. Obviously a wireless ADSL modem can then be used, making the most of the improved connection rates.
