Hi all,

 

 

 

I've just arrived home from the Whitianga Chorus "meeting". Got a bunch of cool info to provide. First, we have photos of the build guide.

 

https://imgur.com/a/na9iz8b - Enjoy

 

 

 

Next Chorus have designed their own Wifi-ONT hybrid. They are trying to get ISP's onboard but not all agreed to use it. Pics here: https://imgur.com/a/USa45n6

 

It's made by Nokia, didn't get the model number sorry. It can act as a router with NAT, or it can also act as a standalone unit that I can connect my router to.

 

 

 

Whitianga fibre was supposed to have started being built by now, but there were problems with digging, aka archaeological reasons. However, Whitianga MUST be completed by June 2020. The build is planned to start September in 2019.

 

 

 

The build will be completed from both sides and go into town. This diagram shows roughly how I believe it is planned to be.

Cheers for the update. A family member has a bach there (rather a part time home now they're retired) so I'll let them know it's on its way. :)

The ONT model is the Nokia G-140W-C

 

One of the issues that can occur with the using the ONT as a RGW rather than putting a separate router is if the ONT is installed somewhere awkward, like a garage which can be common, (as there is often where the copper demark is), it can mean the wifi coverage of the house is poor.

 

While I think it is a good idea it is still to be fully tested out to see how it goes for end customers.

Install dates current are between Dec 2019 and June 2020 however these dates can and do move around month to month (both forward and backwards)

 

Green dots are existing buildings with fibre (NGA) fibre, such as some of the new subdivisions and schools.

 

Hahei is getting fibre in Aug and Sept this year.

 

Whangpoua, Matarangi and Kuaotuna are getting it between now and mid 2020.

 

Cooks Beach / Ferry Landing is mid 2021.

Just in time for NEXT RWC! Ugh!

 

Spark really screwed over the rural towns when they bought the rights and streamed them.

Most of Whangamata already has good VDSL coverage or atleast 10Mbps ADSL, suffient for one or two HD streams of RRC.

I just got a Dad's Army flashback!

 

Also, YAY! for Kuaotunu getting fibre. Didn't think that was ever going to happen.

Personally not a fan of how the new ONTs mount. The older ones were so much more compact and less likely to get whacked by things.

I agree, I understand the idea to create a splice spool with an adaptable clip on plate to allow for easy swap out of future ONTs with potentially different mounting points. But I think if it had been more the dimension of a faceplate and fitted over a flushbox that created a cavity for the spool, but then that limits where the voice socket would go.....

Could you provide the date for FFP10 in Whitianga? Thanks in advance.
