I've decided to go multilink VDSL so after a couple of Draytek VG130's

Thought I'd put it out here just in case someone has one going spare before buying brand new.

I'm rural in the old franklin area so will probably need shipping to me.

Willing to pay around $80

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Will do.  I'm putting it in a site about 50 metres from the exchange.  I'm rural, so no fibre available out here, but we do have VDSL and a fibre fed exchange - The exchange got fibre as it's close to the school.

Line attenuation is supposedly 1dB in both directions so have high expectations.  Shooting for a combined 100/20MBit but will see in a few weeks once it's all working.

Have you found a provider that will bond, or are you doing it at your end. 
For 50m I would have put my own fibre duct in and gone optical, if they could terminate it for an acceptable fee.

I have a similar setup except my modem is 550m from the cabinet. I presently have 1 x draytek 130 just got a 2nd.
I then bounce it off of a solar repeater 3kms to my home,

I get 10/32 atm hoping for the 998 bandplan increase to get me hopefully 10/40 per line 

I have asked snap/2degrees if they will consider layer 2 bonding at there end, waiting to hear back from them . 

For us rural guys this might be the closest we get to fibre for the time being.

Send private message will do it for business connections using MLPPP, unsure about residential accounts.

I've got a small rural Wireless ISP and my current 25/5 Mbit/s (900m from exchange) is reaching it's usable life.

For 50m I would have put my own fibre duct in and gone optical, if they could terminate it for an acceptable fee.

I was quoted around $12,000 for a 40 metre fibre run. There is no business or UFB fibre available, so it's classed as "premium" fibre. This included everything, including traffic management plans, council consents, roadside hatches, etc. Interestingly, I still wouldn't own the duct from the exchange to the roadside, only from the roadside to the installation premises.

The fibre itself is cheap, but the overheads running new ducts is massive.
