Things relevant to Nelsonians.
TelecomNZs ADSL2 + Roll out
September 2011 looks like the date all of Stoke will should be “wired” for ADSL2+.
Well, that’s what this chart here over at Telecom NZs Wholesale webpage indicates.

Couple stats here from NZ Statistics do point the way forward;
To see for yourself when Telecoms new Ethernet network carrying ADSL2+/VDSL2/GPON is coming past your front door, click on the image above, or visit here if you are interested in another part of New Zealand.
Local residents had to be happy with the existing non-HD feed or in time, at a premium, pay to get SkyHD.
Chris Keall over at NBR reports that;
…… because Sky TV has bought out all remaining bandwidth on the Optus D1 satellite covering New Zealand, Freeview can only expand its high-definition (HD) service though through more expensive terrestrial towers.
Jonathon Colemans announcement this week should put an end to this discrepancy….with this timely comment;
‘’The network will be operating in time for the Rugby World Cup, so people will be able to enjoy the action like never before.”
At the birthplace of Rugby in NZ, in this auspicious RWC year, I hope for locals sake that they do indeed met that obligation and deadline.
Lets wait, watch and then…hopefully, see.
Until then though …. to see what you need to receive these new signals head on over to NZ Govt “Lets Go Digital” website to “swot” up.
