ADSL Broadband Plans

ADSL is what many people think of as ‘standard’ broadband. Although it’s now an older technology with lower maximum speeds than VDSL or fibre broadband, it’s still a great, reliable option for many households throughout New Zealand.

If you want broadband for your home, but use mobile phones for all your calls, a naked ADSL internet connection is a great option. Trustpower can provide naked ADSL broadband plans to homes throughout most of New Zealand.

ADSL Speeds

The Commerce Commission’s Measuring Broadband NZ Autumn report (2020) found an average ADSL download speed of 8.5Mbps. ADSL speeds are affected by many factors including the number and type of devices you are connecting and whether you are using WiFi or wired connections with your modem. While slower than Ultra Fast Broadband and VDSL internet connections, ADSL still provides the speeds required for many homes’ browsing and streaming needs.

Your ADSL questions, answered

What is ADSL?

ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line and is a data communications technology which allows a broadband connection over copper telephone lines.

What is the difference between ADSL and VDSL?

VDSL offers a faster connection than ADSL, although both operate over copper lines. ADSL is available to more homes than VDSL and is the only wired broadband connection available in some areas of New Zealand.

How fast is ADSL?

ADSL performance is asymmetrical, meaning it provides faster download speeds than upload speeds. The Commerce Commission’s Measuring Broadband NZ Autumn report (2020) states that the average download speed for ADSL is 8.5Mbps.
