    Default adsl2+ means new backhaul for whole network?

    ok we all know telecom's infrastructure can't handle all the broadband users which is probably why adsl is slow. but someone said when telecom roll out adsl2+ in march,that is uses a new backhaul. does this mean we will get fast speeds? And can only adsl2+ users use the new backhaul or can adsl1 users use it to?

    Plus not enough overseas (& maybe local) bandwidth for Go Large users

    ADSL2 is a faster speeds , the questions is:

    * How much will it cost?
    * What sort of bandwidth caps we are going to have?
    * Are we going to get the FULL ADSL2 speeds or is telcome going to limit it.

    And can only adsl2+ users use the new backhaul or can adsl1 users use it to?
    I think ADSL2 users can only use the new backhaul, but I could be wrong.

    Around mid last year there was a lot of work at exchanges all over the country. New fibre backhaul has been planned in christchurch and I think in other cities. Without that, there would be a massive lock up and adsl2+ would probably be reduced to 256k~

    I suggest they remove bandwidth caps for those who are willing to stay on using ADSL 1 router, which might not be possible.

    I doubt Telecom will rate-limit the ADSL2 speed. Even if they were, they would probably rate-limit it somewhere above the ADSL1 speeds, otherwise it defeats the purpose of installing ADSL2 gears, as people would just stay on ADSL1.
