Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line (VDSL or VHDSL) and Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2 (VDSL2) are digital subscriber line (DSL) technologies providing data transmission faster than asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL).
VDSL broadband: Heaps faster than ADSL! Depending on your line quality, you could get download speeds of up to 70Mbps and upload speeds up to 10Mbps. There are a number of factors involved such as the condition of the copper cables and the distance from the nearest cabinet. The closer you are to the cabinet – the better.
VDSL is the best broadband service available on the copper network. It significantly improves speed over short distances, but you have to be located within around 800m of the cabinet or exchange to take advantage of speeds up to 20Mbps or more. With 7,000 cabinets located throughout New Zealand, nearly two thirds of the New Zealand network lines are within reach of VDSL capability.
