May I enquire as to when Slingshot would be releasing these options? My area is already upgraded with a VDSL2+ card and I would like to know when my connection would utilize this ability.
sbiddle: You will need to be aware that a master VDSL filter is compulsary, there are no DIY plugin in filter options like ADSL.
sbiddle: My understanding is that wholesale VDSL services from Telecom (assuming you're on a wholesale plan with Slingshot) are due to hit the market in the 4th Quarter of this year.

kyhwana2: Hmm, I live in apartment complex and I have naked DSL and no filter on my equipment, once this goes in, will I be able to get vdsl2? (After getting a vdsl2 modem, obviously)
nickb800: So just to clarify - naked dsl users wont need to get a filter? I pressume a vdsl filter works on the same principle as a adsl one, except it blocks a wider frequency range from going to your phone?
I have a wire coming in with a socket on the end of it. Thats the extent of it. Not paying for them to look at or install anything if vdsl ever becomes available. If they want an excessive fee to put in a redundant filter I would be looking at other options.
