After using an old Fritzbox FON WLAN for some time know I have decided to upgrade to the latest model.
Is there a reseller for Fritzbox / AVM in New Zealand?

Snap only stock the 7340. I would prefer the 7390 and may have to source from Australia.

Snap are the official distributors here, so if they don't carry what you want you'll have to source it elsewhere. Just remember that to hook a device up to the Chorus network it legally requires a Telepermit.

sbiddle: Chorus network it legally requires a Telepermit.


Does it legally require a tp or just that Chorus require it to?

It the TP requirement actually in law?

Not that it's an issue anyway, because if a provider requires something for you to connect to their network then iirc you have to comply because of other laws around connecting to networks... but I was just sort of interested.

Oh, and when did Snap become the .nz dist? Last I was talking to .au they didn't have a dist in .nz. Must be quite recent?

Very cool.... I know that a lot of people are liking the products.

The Telecommunications Act 2001 is a law of course but it also does not mention anything about a "telepermit" specifically. It says  it is illegal to connect devices to a Telecommunications Network without the agreement of the Network Operator. That's all.

And Telecom's view is that unless a device has a Telepermit they don't grant permission to connect it to the network.

As for UFB - you'd have to ask CFH what their policy is. Telepermit's are only a Telecom/Chorus thing.

Thanks hads, that's basically what I was asking.   

Permitting used to cost so much money, often for retesting of testing of stuff that had already been tested by manufactures.

Those costs just get passed on to users.

I don't really care about copper any more... does anyone?

But I am quite interested in where we're going in the fibre world.

I'll take Steve's advice and ask CFH about the standards process... I'm sure it's already covered on a web site somethere.

Sorry to ot this a bit guys, thought it was quite interesting.  I'll drop it now.
