It seems my Chorus "fibre ready" subdivision in Waitakere isn't part of Chorus' initial UFB rollout.
Although I'm using fibre with Xnet/WorldxChange as part of a Chorus (ex-Telecom) fibre trial, I can't switch to Orcon's UFB fibre plans (or any other UFB ISP, eg WorldNet).
Orcon's been talking with Chorus for me over the past couple of weeks, and the word is that Chorus doesn't have an ETA for when my fibre-only subdivision will be UFB-enabled.
Surely it'd be trivial to hook up my subdivision's fibre network to UFB?
It feels like Chorus has/had all these trials in place to prep them for the nationwide UFB rollout, yet they can't make the effort to connect my trial subdivision to UFB sooner than later?
Meanwhile my only option for fibre is through expensive Xnet :(
Sorry for the rant, just strikes me as unimpressed.
