ADSL2 from June.

The SST reported over the weekend Telecom will start ADSL2 services " as early as June."

"The new ADSL2 servives will lift download speeds from about 2 megabits a second to as much as 24mb/s. Upload speeds will increase from about 256 kb/s to around 1 mb/s, four times as fast."

The paper says it understands Telecom has been installing equipment for up to a year. But this appears to have been, er, accelerated.

"Since February 14 when Prime Minister Helen Clark named broadband internet as a priority for government intervention, the market has been bracing for a revamp of the telco sector."

Can't be a bad thing.
