Hi - did anyone notice that Telecom now appears to be offering UFB in Hamilton? I haven't seen a press release or anything - can anyone confirm?

Yup, as posted in another thread:

cbrpilot: Hi everyone, if you check the Telecom address checker, you'll find Telecom Ultra Fibre is now available in the following areas:
Te Awamutu
New Plymouth
Wanganui is still a work in progress.

So telecom have finally come out of their chorus shell

 The views expressed by me are not necessarily those of my employer

hyperman: Wow

Telecom have had UFB in Christchurch for well over a year now. So it's certainly nothing to do with Chorus.

Well this will certainly help Waikato's update figures.

Just did a quick check against my current snap plan. For the same price/data as Snap I'd get a slower speed with Telecom it looks like, only 30/10 instead of 50/20.

They kept pretty quiet about this. 

A bit embarrassing I suppose.

Does this mean they're offering VOIP now, or are they still doing their UFB + POTS line thing?

I think it is still UFB + POTS therefore only limited to brownfield areas, not in fibre only subdivisions

surfisup1000: They kept pretty quiet about this.

Sending a 10-paragraph release to the media is "quiet"?
