Orcon CEO Scott Bartlett, Chorus External Communications Manager Robin Kelly and Head of Industry Relations Craig Young, and TechDay’s Sean Mitchell will answer your questions and provide practical information on how you can make the most of UFB.
If you live in Auckland this is clearly a fantastic opportunity to learn about the UFB project and understand how fibre will be installed to your home or business. A free breakfast is also a great selling point!

Not surprising it is Aucks only ... - Wellington already has 100mbs Internet. They are trying to introduce 21st century to the technology backwoods. Seriously - Orcon appear keen to position themselves as the 'goto guys' for UFB.

Good to see Orcon taking the lead from a Retail Service Provider perspective. 20,000 homes have been passed with fibre already, but uptake is apparently only around 2% at the moment. There's no doubt that Joe Public is going to want to know what benefits he is going to get out of fibre that he's not already getting out of ADSL broadband. I say good on Orcon for taking the first steps at trying to educate consumers of the benefits of fibre.

Annoyed that I missed out on this. Hoping they do repeats.
