Consent required appeared on our property when it wasn't (easements and conduit in place for phone and data cables).

 

I sometime wonder if it's a deferral tactic used to manage workload - if it looks like it might possibly be even slightly complicated, chuck it on the back burner and keep going on the easy jobs.

So that's fibre - they will blow the fibre through that. The other end should run back to the ABFAT, pillar or microduct outside your house.

 

Where exactly is this located in your house? Is it in a position where the ONT can be installed and is there power there? Running a single cat5e cable seems to be the sort of a thing a dumb sparky and developer who knows nothing would do.

Assuming that's the only ducting coming to your house you're not going to get a copper install for $199 as there is unlikely to be any infrastructure for it.

It is located next to the house. I don't know where the ABFAT/pillar/microduct is.

 

It should be quite easy to install an ONT. And yes power is near.

When you say "near" is that inside or outside? The ONT is only installed inside.

The cable (black) is next to the garage. In the garage there are a couple of power outlets. Shouldn't be a problem I believe.

Does the house have a structured cabling solution? If so does the cat5e cable run to this? If so (which I'm guessing is the case) it's a pretty poor setup only running a single cable as you could never do voice over the ONT without needing a splitter and being restricted to 100Mbps unless you can run another cable.

Why would Cat-5e cable run outside of the house?

I recall Chorus' recommendation was run Cat5e/Cat6 from the structured wiring cabinet to the ETP

The Ethernet cable from inside to the ETP is most likely a "pull wire."  It will allow the pulling in of fibre from the ETP to the ONT location.  There was/is a Chorus recommendation to provide a pull wire when doing pre-wiring in a new build.  Since Cat5e or Cat6 is what you have on hand, when pre-wiring, that is what is often used.

Thanks everyone, we've got internet.

 

I'm very disappointed in BigPipe. The fact we've got internet within a couple of weeks is solely because I've emailed Chorus and the contractors directly. BigPipe could not do anything. They say that Chorus is listening better when customers email directly.

 

They also said I could not be signed up for Fibre until I lived there, the fact that we owned the house did not matter. Apparently a lie, as the neighbors (in a similar position) were connected to Fibre BEFORE moving in. So it is possible... When I would not have done everything, we would still be on mobile internet for $20 / GB.

 

Connection is fine now, but I really can't recommend BigPipe AT ALL when you need a new connection.

I'd say your being a little harsh on bigpipe, as an employee of a small ISP I know how hard it is to deal with chorus, they run everything to a price point and are unwilling to go that step further to help. Even if its as simple as sending out the fiber install guy as the infrastructure is there like in your case.

Well, what about the fact that according to BigPipe Fibre could not be requested until I lived there, and our neighbors (who haven't moved in yet) already have Fibre installed?

 

There are more things that happened, and BigPipe acknowledged that they could have done things better. Keep in mind everything happens via email, so conversations can take days. I understand their pricing model, but in my case phone support would have made things much better.
