ADSL2 in Christchurch.. probably other places too.

ADSL2 in Christchurch.. probably other places too. A lot of people think that ADSL2 is only available in Auckland or on a special plan or whatever. This is untrue. Telecom have been upgrading exchanges around the country since last year. Myself and a few friends are in Christchurh with Orcon and are connected using ADSL2. I just downloaded some drivers off intel.com at 1.4MB/s. earlier this week I downloaded ubuntu at the same speed from ftp.citylink.co.nz. This isn't very well known at all. Buy a cheap modem eg Dynalink RTA1320 and try it out for yourselves. You might be in for some faster speeds.

Ubuntu is a lot faster becouse it is a lot smaller than windows,will not crash,as windows will.
