The Black cable comes direct from the demarc on the pavement outside.
We knew I was on the edge of the exchange, literally on the line, two doors down are on a different one. After 3 months I ditched ADSL and we had a business grade Cable connection installed, which was great when I worked for them and they paid the bill. However after 4 years later, I left and started paying for this business grade connection, while regularly checking www.telecomwholesale.co.nz/maps for updates on cabinetisation.
The dates have been the same for the last 4 years, September 2011. Finally last week, 18th August the cabinet was marked as complete so in went my order for VDSL. After which we found the software on the ISAM needs updating for VDSL. So I have to wait another week. In the meantime,they have sent me one of these:
Onto this we will be migrating my:
- existing POTS number
- existing UK based SIPGate account and phone number
- existing IPv4 and IPv6 subnets from my cable connection
- existing servers currently sat in a DMZ with public IPv4 and v6 addresses assigned to them
My Mrs will go nuts if anything stops working (She's a techophobe), so I am praying for a seamless migration :-)
