Heya, have VDSL through bigpipe just connected today

I don't have a bt to rj11 cable and so can't plug the router in!!

Anyone in Tauranga/ mt maunganui got a spare bt to rj11 cable, or a spare ADSL filter? (Can use the filter to make it work)

Dont use a adsl filter for this, that will be counter productive.




pop down to your local computer/eletronics store and pickup one from there.

I'll be in Tauranga Wednesday. Though would be best to have a master filter installed for best VDSL performance.

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?
