VDSL is the best broadband service on the copper network. Not every line will achieve 70Mbps, as your broadband speed is affected by the network configuration and by how close your property is located to a cabinet or exchange. The average sync rate for VDSL technology across the Chorus broadband network is currently 50Mbps. To find out more about VDSL speeds on the Chorus network see here

*The potential VDSL sync rate at your address cannot currently be accurately predicted before you connect. We are working to provide you with this information.

Benefits

ADSL2+ is available to properties located within a 7km radius from a broadband cabinet.

    Check it out here. Does this give you all the info you need to make sure you have the best broadband possible at your place? Let us know.

  • Broadband checker accuracy

    If the result you’re seeing on our broadband checker doesn’t look quite right, or if we cannot find your address, please send us an email.

    If you’d like to learn more about how the Chorus sync rate works, see here.

    Potential services and speed are not guaranteed until connected. Please consult with your preferred broadband provider to confirm what services are available at your address.

  • Roll out dates
    • Rollout dates and locations are indicative only and may be subject to change. Call your broadband provider to confirm availability.
    • Our map shows indicative dates to give you an idea of when upgraded services may be available. The UFB and RBI projects are a massive undertaking and a number of external influences can cause delays such as poor weather conditions and local council negotiations and approvals.
    • The rollout is completed by cabinet area, not street, so while you may be able to get fibre, your neighbour may need to wait a little longer while we finish the job.
