ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) can simply be thought of as "standard" broadband. It uses the normal copper phone line to connect your home or business to the Internet by transmitting at a higher frequency than voice. If you are within 6km of a roadside cabinet or exchange than it is highly likely you will be able to connect with ADSL.
As the most popular type of broadband used in New Zealand homes and businesses ADSL suits the usage demands of most people. It is easy to connect and existing connections can be quickly transferred from another provider to Actrix at no cost.
ADSL has been around for over ten years so it is a tried and trusted technology. It has been continuously improved upon and in December 2011 we saw the introduction of ADSL2+ which allows broadband connections to reach higher speeds. At this time VDSL2 was also introduced. If you have an ADSL connection with Actrix you will automatically be using ADSL2+ if your cabinet is capable.
We have a wide range of ADSL plans for you to choose from. You can include your phone line as a bundle or exclude the phone line and go with a naked connection. To check availability at your address click on "Set Address" beneath the Plan Chooser below. For business connections please see the business plans. If you have a number of devices using your internet connection and you think you may need more speed maybe a VDSL connection would suit you better.
