How long does it take to get a new residential connection with Vodafone UFB (not cable) going in Christchurch? I have a friend whom I want to share some large files with and she has been waiting for the work to be done on her connection for nearly two months. It is available at the street. Is this how long it takes to get connected normally? I understand Enable is handling the ufb connections in this city. By contrast anyone eligible for Fibre X (cable) with Vodafone can get it in three days or else Vodafone promises to give a $100 credit. Luckily we live in the same city so I could run a pen drive back and forth; a 12km round trip, which is not so good environmentally.
