I'm not really taking the Chorus website that personally.
Last year it said that we'd get UFB in September 2012, and there were cables laid around then. It kept saying that until October, when the date for UFB got changed to February 2013.
It now says that we have UFB. Our ISP say they've not been told that. Given that there are 6 houses on this block facing this street but only 1 green box on the footpath I'm inclined to think UFB hasn't really arrived.
Many (though not all) of the nearby blocks have a more of those green boxes so we may be an island of copper in a lake of glass. I don't think we're the only island though.
