surfisup1000: And, why not the rest of the country?
This is the problem I have with the fibre rollout structure -- different regions are receiving varying levels of service/ products.
The other LFCs will follow with near-identical offers shortly. The new plans have been in the pipeline for a while - namely the New Zealand Telecommunications Forum meets at minimum once a month to discuss UFB product development and other matters.
All LFCs and most ISPs are involved in this product development process.
On a side-note - we'll be making an announcement next week with new plans for residential customers effective from November 1.
