For business Telecom already offers a SIP trunking service and we work with it.

It works over Fibre.

That I don't know, I'm afraid.

However, there are plenty other VoIP providers in New Zealand that will provide you with a New Zealand land line number over IP.

Yes, but as Telecom don't provide a naked broadband service, for someone wanting to choose Telecom as their provider, they can't go that way at present :)

Telecom only provide fibre through Chorus at this stage. Your area may not be within a Chorus area. Where are you?

There are plenty of providers of naked broadband service.

Yes, but as I said, for someone wanting Telecom as their provider, it is not an option.

Running voice from the ONT's voice ports back to the NEAX SIP linecards is taking a lot longer than originally planned to have ready for production.

Sorry missed that bit.

As already mentioned no service date for voice over fibre, can only give you the standard Telecom disclosure :)

"For an initial period, likely most of 2013, Telecom will continue to run voice services over a copper connection. We will give 30 days notice before transitioning voice services to fibre. Transition may require internal access to your property. If we cannot arrange access we will revert your BB services back to copper and terminate your fibre connection.

When we move your voice services to fibre we will disconnect your copper line. As a result certain voice features will no longer be available such as call waiting and 3-way calling. This may also impact the functionality of services such as monitored alarms that use the copper connection to communicate with emergency services. Please ensure that when your voice service is moved to fibre, any equipment connected to the ONT voice port is immediately tested for compatibility. We will be in touch with more information before your voice services are moved to help you do this"

*Edit - typo
