I got home today to see fibre optic being layed across the road from my house.  I am out in the sticks of Marlborough at Rapaura, the heart of the grape growing industry here, and had not expected this to happen for years!  It will be connected to the school at the end of our road to start with, and then to the Telecom cabinet oposite the school.

I have been trying to find  how this works, (are there any sticky threads here?).  I'm guess we have to make do with copper from the cabinate to start with (about 300 metres away), and am wondering how that will work?

BTW  The two tractors move forward at about   50mm a second. and actually slowed down while crossing the stoney entrance to the vineyard just in front of the rear tractor.  The ground is FULL of rocks here though.

BTW2  The vans are marked Chorus, so I guess they are handling the installation in Marlborough?

I'll get more pictures if anyone is interested.

That green tape still says Telecom on it :P

I noticed the same thing when I had a Chorus guy out a few weeks ago; he fixed some cables and left a Telecom thingy over it.
