Hi there.

Im curerntly with Telecom on ADSL but im really keen on getting UFB.

My dilemma is that Telecom will need to dig up my driveway to install the UFB cable (technician has already been around to scope the property)

The landlord has said that we are able to install it but if the contractors don't do a good job of restoring the driveway, it will be our responsibility to do so. 

Has anyone had to get the ufb cable put in under their driveway? how well did the contractors restore the driveway? how is it holding up now? any cracks? 

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Installers will seek to minimize impact to grassed areas. If hard surfaces are impacted, they will be resealed. Chorus techs will discuss it with you onsite I would note that reinstatement is as per Chorus' reinstatement policy.
Basically Chorus will try to reinstate to the previous standard but this is not guaranteed especially where specific hard surfaces are used like say matching concrete patina, paving stones, etc.

Yea, new white concrete across old grey stuff is an obvious patch. Got some good examples outside our house!

cheers for the reply guys.

The driveway is the old grey stone so you would probably see the difference with the white concrete.

May have to flag it, as I do not want the landlord to make me pay for a whole new driveway.

Thanks guys.
