Nice!  great to see you finally up and running  (and gives a glimmer of hope to other people in MDUs who maybe wondering if an MDU install is ever possible!)

The secret with an MDU install is to keep on at the building managers and body corp, with a little sprinkle of patience 




The little things make the biggest difference.

and your ISP and Chorus and their subcontractor(s).

I've seen MDU installs fall over between Chorus and their subcontractors even though the building manager and body corp were happy for the install to go ahead.

You are right about the patience though...

Really wish I had of opted into getting a static IP on sign up as I can't game online :(

bigpipe how long after receiving a request for a static IP does it take to fulfill?

I requested it an hour after I was connected, and they did it within a few hours.

Bah. "At last". I'll let you know when my fibre comes online sometime in 2019. Hopefully.

:)

Cheers,

Usually an hour or two, if done during normal business hours,  otherwise might be a day or so.

If you've ordered and not heard anything, PM me your email address and I'll follow up for you.

Cheers

I had to give up after 12 months because I'm moving to another building.. Unfortunately that building has 'consent declined' :(
