Assuming the copper isnt removed as part of the fibre installation, Absolutely you can have both services.

Better question would be Short of redundancy why would you like to keep the slower connection rather than upgrade the speed without duplicating on the cost?

In Christchurch, Enable is the company who is controlling the fibre.

They wont / can't remove the copper wire going from the boundary to the house, since its owned by Spark (Telecom).

Instead they can rewire all / some of the jack points in the house to connect to a device that provides a phone line over fibre (known as an ATA).

You can keep the copper and fibre connected and running together but a single jack point (BT socket) can only connected to one of them at a time.

Question: Do you have a phone plugged in, and Do you make and receive calls using that phone?
I guessing the landlord controls that phone number and is under the landlords account, which would mean you would not be able to port the number over to MyRepublic.

As you suggest, You can get fibre with Myrepublic, you can just ask them not to provision a number / landline on their network and just use the copper line for a phone.

You can plug in a phone or modem into the other jack point if see if you have dial tone or if the modem connects.
