Our networks team is working constantly to improve our cable network's capacity. Currently, our Tech Team is running a D-CMTS upgrade. This is part of a wider node upgrade programme designed to deliver greater capacity to our ultra-fast cable (UFC) customers in Wellington and Christchurch.

 

Ultimately, we are future-proofing the UFC network so you can continue to do your thing better now and in the future.

 

Here's a list of nodes that have been upgraded so far in September:

Hi Mike,

 

I've just today signed up for 100mb cable in Stokes Valley - I am located in Robson St. Installation next week

 

I'm severely concerned now after reading some of the information on Geekzone that I am going to be disappointed with the speeds available. From what I can see, no upgrade has been completed in the Stokes Valley area.

 

Can you confirm what node this area is on and when any upgrade is expected. I think from what I've seen at this stage I will likely cancel and stick with VDSL.

@ChopperNZ

 

I know the Geekzone thread you're referring to and it's pretty out of date now. Direct message me (click on my name) with your account details and I'll check on the node details etc. The cable network is good and improving - the upgrade programme is to add further speed and bandwidth.

 

Cheers

Hi Guys 

 

The cable broadband system is definitely worth having, i have it and will not be getting rid of it anytime in future, it's far more reliable than most people see Smiley Happy 

 

Looking forward to the upgrade Smiley Happy

Is this the upgrade that will bring gigabit speeds to wellington as promised at the end of last year? If so this is super exciting!
