Hello,

 


We are a motley bunch of tech geeks from Chorus who are passionate about UFB and the infinite possibilities this once-in-many-generation telecommunications infrastructure upgrade will bring. We are also the company behind the nationwide #Gigatown competition, and look forward to representing our company on these forums. We will provide the odd tech focused discussion topic, while also helping with any queries via PM. We look forward to getting stuck in!

Welcome Chorus....just wondering if you are open to bribes to get fiber down my street? I can only pay in beer sorry but am happy to help dig up the sidewalk :)

Nice to have you all here.

Indeed! This will sound like an echo, but I'm prepared to bribe for WHK/FFP23 to be built sooner rather than later ;)

Hi, I live in an area where only ADS1 is available, my cabinet is HNE/AG, what would it take to upgrade us to at least ADSL2+? I am told there is fibre to the cabinet too. Or preferbly what would it take to get fibre? I don't think my area is planned at all (I live in Tamahere, Rosebanks drive) we have RBI but it is pretty slow, my line attenuation is 29dB and I'm about 2.4K from the cabinet. I run an IT business from home so having a higher speed connection would mean a lot.

Cheers.
