Absolutely off topic, but can't help but be tickled by Chorus citing a shortage of workers.

 

They're leaving out the bit where they don't want to pay them a living wage.





Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

Gorch:

 

Feeling pretty lucky with all the talk of delays in installs, my Enable install was actually brought forward several days!

 

They were really good about putting the ONT where I wanted it rather than where most convenient as well.

 

Got all set up yesterday morning, and the fibre connection was live in seconds! Great to have non-hotspot internet after nearly a month :D

 

Thanks for making it seamless @quic

 

 

Welcome to the Quic family, @Gorch! πŸ€— Pleased to hear all went smoothly!

Yeah I know quic don't provide routers, I'm asking other people who use their services to post recommendations if they know of a good model

A fast connection requires a newer, fast modem - which one are you using?

@trak Respond in your other thread where you've been asking and abandoned: https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=49&topicid=303614

 

Don't post in here, this isn't the thread for it. But IMHO if you're looking for advise on what consumer grade wireless router to grab for a 2Gbit Hyperfibre connection then Quic may be not the right ISP for you. I'd say the majority of people using their Hyperfibre plans won't be using consumer grade routers for the task.

I doubt Quic are shy about passing on NFF fees, either.

Awesome! Welcome on board @trak! 🧑

Pretty much @Lorenceo - with our target audience being technical, and access to lodge faults, the saying "with great power comes great responsibility" comes to mind! πŸ˜‚

 

We're not going to go and charge a NFF fee if we aren't charged one, but simply put: LFC charges us a NFF fee = we charge you an NFF fee. Simple and clear-cut.
