    Well am I on a roll.

    Having been told by Vodafone that I couldn’t have Fibre all the way at my new house and had to settle for a mixture of Copper and Fibre I let them proceed.

    After a hell of the struggle to get even that up and running, plus a couple of weeks without Phone or Internet, I finally got connected.

    Now wouldn’t you know it, but I get an unsolicited call from Trustpower offering me the world.

    I quickly explained that I couldn’t have Fibre according to Vodafone and he disagreed.

    To cut a long story short I told him if he could provide Fibre all the way we had a deal.

    About a week later a guy turns up and takes a squiz, about a couple of days later two guys turn up and a couple of hours later they were gone. There was a small coil of fibre at the agree entry point but no further sign of their presence. Today a guy by himself turns up and a couple of hours later we are all connected except the phone doesn’t work but the Internet does.

    Now here’s the rub.

    Last night I did a speedtest on the old system just for comparison and got this:

    And after the installation of the new beaut fibre I get this:

    At the old house I wasn’t getting the 100/20 I was paying for, but I was getting 50/20.

    I am awaiting an explanation, but not holding my breath.
