blur:BlakJak: You're asking this in the Telecom forum. :P
If you don't have Fibre to your premesis the easiest options will be HSNS Lite based, but you're limited to several mbit/sec symmetric. Several ISPs can offer you HSNS Lite on Telecom/Chorus Copper, including Telecom themselves.
HSNS is at least, business grade connectivity.
I'm going to get a feasibility study done as to whether we can connect to fibre. My understanding is that we have Chorus fibre running past the gate so I’d be interested to see what the cost will be to get ourselves connected.
If we are able to connect, what are our options then?
The Fibre service is usually with a small list of Fibre Players depending on where in NZ you are.
Are all players.
Usually you select a Layer 3 Service provider who act as a wholesaler for the Layer 2 Fibre service. All except Vector will do both layers, I think? Essentially pick your ISP of choice and ask them what fibre connectivity options they can present, and go from there (rinse and repeat, if necessary).
If you have Chorus fibre past your gate you will need to either pay for the link to your premesis, or come to a deal via your ISP (some will pay the up-front connectivity cost in return for a 2 or 3 year contract, for example.)
