    Default New TelstraClear services?

    Brenda Stonestreet, TelstraClear's head of small and medium business, said TelstraClear was close to launching a new range of services, including VDSL2, a super-fast version of standard DSL broadband. It would be available at more than 130 sites across the country and offer download speeds of 30Mbps, she said.
    From here.

    Does anybody know anything about this? 130 sites sounds promising!

    Will be interesting...they could easily put 130 sites in the Auckland area though.

    30Mbps would certainly be nice.

    I wonder how many arms and legs it would cost though. I've only got two of each. Maybe a lowish data cap? 10GB/month?

    I wonder whether they actually need to. According to Wikipedia (my emphasis):

    ADSL-like long reach performance is one of the key advantages of VDSL2. LR-VDSL2 enabled systems are capable of supporting speeds of around 1-4 Mbit/s (downstream) over distances of 4 to 5 km (2 ˝ to 3 miles), gradually increasing the bit rate up to symmetric 100 Mbit/s as loop-length shortens. This means that VDSL2-based systems, unlike VDSL1 systems, are not limited to short local loops or MTU/MDUs only, but can also be used for medium range applications.
    If the details on the rest of the page are correct then I'd be looking at 20-30 Mb/s at my place (if it comes to Whakatane).
