So last night some dude bangs the door down trying to sell me VF's FibreX.
Because I hold both VF and Spark in mutual contempt I was about to tell him to bugger off, but the dog seemed to being enjoying the interaction so I let him say his bit. Apparently VF have spent 26 million recently in the Lower Hutt / Wainui area to give internet at Fibre speeds, but it's not actually fibre.
(Like anyone's gonna spend 26 million around Wainui, but that's another story.)
He quoted speeds to me blah blah blah and I said to ring me Sunday when I've thought about it.
Currently on VDSL (or is it ADSL?, the faster one) with Spark and presently it's not possible to use the WIFI if the PS4 is on. It appears the PS uses whatever internet-juice that comes thru the cable and there's not enough to run a lappie as well. Turn the PS4 off, lappie connection bursts into life. So I'm not well predisposed to Spark anyway.
Any views on this FibreX from VF? Is it actually The Real Deal, or just more bullshit from someone trying to get business from someone else and after all the crap changing over, I'll be back to square one...
