nVoID: Don't use  http://www.ultrafastfibre.co.nz/getting-connected/address-finder, it doesn't know sh#t. Clearly using http://www.chorus.co.nz/maps is the way to go. 


Funny thing is the chorus one doesnt have a clue about my address whereas the ultrafastfibre one does.

People should be aware that there are 4 LFC's at present. Each has won the build for particular areas.
If you are in an Chorus area then you ill be in the Chorus tool, if you are in Hamilton then its UFF, Christchurch and its Enable etc.

I would not expect the address to show any results for the tools on any LFC if you are not in that LFC's build...

So a 'simple' address checker is not really as simple as you might think, add into that there is no single standard for storing or presenting this address information and you get a feel for why things can be confused.

Maybe a simple page is in order somewhere that directs people to the correct address checker for their LFC.
