VDSL2 is a high-speed version of ADSL, providing speeds of up to 50Mbit/s down and 10Mbit/s up. However it is only available in certain locations, such as when there is a Chorus cabinet close to your premise.
VDSL2 is a great alternative to UFB fibre if it is not yet available, however VDSL suffers from some of the same problems that ADSL2+ does. It can be seriously affected by the age and quality of the copper phone lines at your premise, your distance from the exchange, and other factors.
VDSL2 installation requires a Chorus technician to visit your premise and install a VDSL2 splitter. You’ll need to nominate a single jack-point in your premise which will be used exclusively for VDSL (no voice). Installation costs $100 for connections that already have an existing phone line, or $200 for “Naked” (no phone line) installations.
ADSL2+ can theoretically provide speeds of up to 24Mbit/s down and 1Mbit/s up. However performance can vary significantly depending on the quality of the copper phone lines into your premise, distance from the exchage, and many other factors. We cannot guarantee speeds on the ADSL2+ network.
ADSL2+ installation is free and can usually be completed without a technician visiting your premise. You will require an ADSL2+ modem and router, and we strongly suggest our managed router option.
