ADSL installations quicker?

Has Telecom been given a rocket over the time it takes to get ADSL
installed?

For a couple of years, a friend has been trying to get Telecom to
install ADSL at his rural property, just out of Manakau (Manawatu), with
absolutely no interest or progress from Telecom at all - couldn't be
done, apparently. So much for Telecom bleating that they have to support
rural customers.

Friend approached Orcon; had a working ADSL connection in 3 days!

Just wondering if others are experiencing much quicker installations
lately (maybe as a result of recent bad publicity), or is this a one-off?

Last few months Telecom have been extremely fast at getting new connections
up and running.... use to be a minimum 3 week wait, now its a week or less.
