Keen to talk to any fellow GZers who are based/work outside of the Upper North Island (Taupo & South).

We've enjoyed working with CoffeeBaron for VDSL Master Splitter installs (which we encourage clients to have done unless there is a very good reason) - and would prefer to work with independent contractors across NZ than with Chorus.

I do splitter installs.
I'm based in Whangarei but can do out of town jobs as well.
Contact details in my signature.
Not sure if you want someone up here though??

I'll send you a PM. Good to have contacts everywhere! I'm guessing you can sometimes come a little south from time to time too.

Do you need any kind of licence to install these? I DIY installed my own one in my house, it wasn't a difficult task.

Na nothing like that required. A good knowledge of general phone wiring is essential though for doing them in most homes. But yea, not a difficult task but can be tricky in some houses where running cables is tricky.

Im in Palmy and have installed more splitters than I care to think about lol.

Cheers for that Sam. If I see anyone in this area asking about master splitters, I can advise them to contact you; if you don't mind that is?
