Found these reasonable cheap splitters on tradme which aren't telepermitted but are apparently the same model that telecom was preciously using?

Any reason not to go there? If chorus found one of these installed would they throw a wobbly?

Using non-Telepermitted equipment can be VERY expensive if they cause any problems on the network (Im not talking about your LAN).

Its like driving a car without a WOF.... may work, but if anything goes wrong, you bear the cost of the repairs, fines etc when they find the vehicle isnt WOF'ed.

I'd have serious doubts about the claim these support VDSL.

Those are MM3200B's, they are only ADSL2+ rated, and not suitable for VDSL2. They were only ever produced by one manufacturer which was Marque Magnetics, I dont believe they ever sported a Telepermit sticker, but I presume they have one. I would be very surprised if they were a fake simply because there manufacture and supply line was a closed shop, so I would say they are perfectly fine, just not VDSL2 rated, only ADSL2+

I can source telepermitted ones which do support VDSL for approx $30 each (sorry, cant sell you them, account is for company use only :( ) - for the extra $5, saves you potential issues down the track :)

I too would recommend that you use a VDSL2 rated one, saves having to upgrade it a few months/years down the track.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Their seem to be a few ADSL splitters selling at big discounts at the moment, better check its not one of those before handing over the money. Best to get the VDSL one if you can, unless you will be happy with ADSL speeds when/if Telecom do any upgrades. Personally I would be fine with even 10Mbps if I could get reasonable international throughput.
