Chorus promised to start BOF-UFB conversion in the middle of this year.

From Chorus letter:

With the move to a fibre world, Chorus has a programme of work to migrate from BOF to NGA technology in these fibre subdivisions to ensure a consistent fibre approach.  We are planning the equipment roll out to start by the middle of the year. This means that when we install the new GPON equipment at the relevant exchange,  service providers who may have carried out product development for UFB,  will be able to offer NGA based fibre services to residents in those subdivisions if they choose. BOF services will no longer be offered to new customers once NGA services are introduced into the new subdivision.  WorldxChange will plan to migrate customers to new NGA services at that time. 


Does anybody from fibre-ready subdivision get UFB yet? Can you select Internet provider?

$70 for a Mikrotik router and 15 minutes to configure a hotspot with individual logins for each family member with a monthly quota would easily fix that.



Thanks for that! Never thought in this way. I'll do it when I'll change Xnet to another provider. 


Why not do it now? A least then then you could move off a rate shaped plan and wouldn't have to keep complaining..
