Or just check the router

geek_wholesaler, Oct 1, 6:07 pm

ROFLMAO Quote from that test: "This address is scheduled to be connected to a roadside cabinet with ADSL2+ technology in approximately Jul 2010."

geek_lostdude, Oct 1, 6:09 pm

Mine said April 2011
Wholesaler: Bet your router can't tell you when its being upgraded.....

geek_pcgeek, Oct 1, 6:13 pm

April 2011 here for a roadside cabinet ..ek.

geek_gibler, Oct 1, 6:17 pm

Even more frustrating when you spy the Chorus worker wiring up the cabinet for an area just a short jump away.

geek_gibler, Oct 1, 6:18 pm

I could make it tell me. Its open source so I could just get it to enter my address each time and view the result. I am in Dunedin Cente and I dont get it until Oct 2010 ffs

geek_wholesaler, Oct 1, 6:19 pm

Just check my modem? This address is scheduled to be connected to a roadside cabinet with ADSL2+ technology in approximately Jul 2009 .http://images.trademe.co.nz/photoserver/47/77290147_full.jpg Who do i believe?

geek_kane199, Oct 1, 6:22 pm

most of the "bigger" exchanges are ADSL2+ enabled .. but I guess (like me) they think you are too far away to get any benefit - hence the roadside cabinets.

geek_gibler, Oct 1, 6:25 pm

The speed change was non exsistant it just went from "multimode" (adsl) to adsl2 with no speed change.

geek_kane199, Oct 1, 6:26 pm

Well mines adsl2, So maybe i might get rid of the old D-Link 500 (2001 model)(which gives me 6.6Mbps, so wonder what an adsl2 modem would do).

geek_swivel, Oct 1, 6:31 pm

Slingshot can tell you If you can take Slingshot you are
probably enabled ADSL2.You don't have to take it LOL.Depends where you are

geek_deodar, Oct 1, 6:54 pm

geek_wholesaler, Oct 1, 6:55 pm

Omg This address is scheduled to be connected to a roadside cabinet with ADSL2+ technology in approximately Jan 2012.

geek_2gd4ubb, Oct 1, 7:24 pm

geek_intrade, Oct 1, 7:52 pm

*sigh* Unfortunately this address is outside the planned ADSL2+ network area.

geek_trial_by_fire, Oct 1, 8:43 pm

Yeah thats the Red area. They reckoned I can get it but IGrin
the local ISP don't agree,or Telecom.
The GPS maps can't even get my street
or Zoom In on me.

geek_deodar, Oct 1, 9:28 pm

That site is not fully accurate. Does anyone have a link of all the cabnits updated? (So i can check myself lol) (meh its 10pm i cant spell)

geek_wholesaler, Oct 1, 9:50 pm

ADSL2+ is overrated, its all about ADSL3++ Due in your area August 2056!!

geek_rhys.m, Oct 1, 9:51 pm

I think u mean 6502 knowing Telecom

geek_wholesaler, Oct 1, 10:00 pm

Well thats funny Cos where I am, article in Saturdays paper said end of this year for my area.

geek_mcceltic, Oct 1, 10:02 pm

Yeah, typo sorry :X

geek_rhys.m, Oct 1, 10:02 pm

Ive got ADSL+2 here but no difference. Still stuck on 3.5mbps connection. Line attenuation is too high at 52.

geek_jmpcwiz, Oct 1, 10:26 pm

Vodafone sucks how about this message from vodafone ,,,Sorry - your area is within a Vodafone Red Zone however you can't get our new Red services.

Unfortunately although you're within a Vodafone Red Zone our new Red services are not available at your address.
bloody typical.

geek_aktow, Oct 2, 2:38 am

You would think with Telecom currently installing new roadside cabinets that adsl2+ equipment would be being installed right now, not 2 years down the track. Why would an isp invest in standard adsl to install now when they are fully aware adsl2+ was about due for release. Wholesaler: according to the chorus website central dunedin is the last to get roadside cabinet upgrade, suburbs are done first which is odd...my suburb is april next year, then two years for adsl2+, something doesn't make sense....

geek_pcgeek, Oct 2, 8:18 am

2011 Here in Foxton.

geek_sneps, Oct 2, 8:29 am

Mine says i cant even get any broadband but thats funny i have had it for 3 years

geek_lustee32, Oct 2, 8:35 am

Not bad ;) "This address is near an exchange which is scheduled to be upgraded with ADSL2+ technology in approximately Dec 2009."

geek_pixma, Oct 2, 9:12 am

geek_pcgeek, Oct 2, 9:14 am

For the real Dunedin cabinet coverage areas http://gibler.orconhosting.net.nz/south_dunedin.jpg http://gibler.orconhosting.net.nz/north_dunedin.jpg Although someone had done some Google Earth KML files for the cabinets for all of NZ.
