When is ADSL2+ going to be avaliable in Whangaparaoa, Auckland? (Rodney)

Im sick to death of my ISP, but currently, they are cheapest/data option we have!


Move in Slingshot! come on!
Any kind of dates (not specific, that would be a stupid question) but a ball park at least? like months?

Good thing the council/NZHerald saved Auckland from those ugly black cables!
You might have a decent alternative :(

:( Gah. Bring on some decent internet already damn it!


I mean, i have to admit, I myself wouldn't want to see MORE cables hanging from the skies. But I REALLY want some decent internet. Sick of shabby upload speeds.

but further back on topic.. Slingshot + ADSL2 + my area = ... when!?

I think you should be nagging Vodafone and they sell the adsl2+ TNBT to Slingshot. Vodafone pulled back on rolling out to exchanges as Telecom was doing the Cabernet thing. Not saying that Telecom fault or that Telecom is being anti-competitive as I don't want to start a ten years long argument.

If it's upload speeds you're after, and you really want Slingshot (????), then you actually want Max.

Hi thanks for you reply.

The only reason I was really rooting for Slingshot to come ot my area is the fact they are cheap.
 I know with cheaper pricing you get cheaper quality (usually how it goes) but for the price they're offering, it would be too good to pass up.

Had a look at Max, and it doesn't look like it would be suitable for my situation, but thanks for the suggestion.

You don't know how lucky you are living in Auckland, there are so many alternatives.

Most companies seem to add on an extra $20 for ADSL2+ from the few that i've seen although Xtra does it with no added cost.

For an aproximate time, put your address in here and see:

http://www.telecom.co.nz/adsl2plus

This sould give you an approximate date. My address in Lower Hutt says (and has said for over a year) 'by Jan 2010', but I was put onto ADSL2+ last week. So for me it was fairly accurate.

I don't know whether being on Slingshot will make a difference, but hopefully this gets you the date you were after :)
