hey, so i received email from bagpipe saying my property should be good to go for standard UFB install.
and it just explained the step of handing it over to chorus, installing fibre cable and install ONT.

Now, I've been through all that process when I was with snap, and this is my first time changing ISP.
Do I have to go through all that process again?

Also for confirmation I've got fritzbox 7430 from snap, can I used this one?

as of right now, our automatic email that goes out doesn't differentiate between new installs vs cusotmers shifting ISPs, so it tries to cover off both scenarios (and it may be a little confusing because of that - something we're looking to fix in our next sprint).

no, you don't have to go through that whole install process again - moving ISPs on UFB is pretty straightforward.

Hi, we've recently moved out of our apartment and have disconnected from snap. And we are currently living at my parents house waiting for our new house to be completed in early November. Would this mean I am not eligible for this geekzone exclusive since I don't have a current ISP?

I've been trying to sign up to bigpipe ufb with the geekzone promotion but have been unable to get past the address verification stage on the website. It says that UFB is not available but I know for a fact that it is. Have submitted a support ticket.

BigPipeNZ:
Therk: Awesome timing for me. Is it possible to get $100 credit on the account instead of a voucher by any chance? Or perhaps a Westfield giftcard/voucher?

Also, would anyone be able to recommend me a decent UFB router that won't break the bank? Say, up to $200.


Netcomm NF4V seems a popular choice.  Just under $200 from PBtech


I know this deal is over.  But what router do you suggest for the $79 100 speed UFB?

As you say PB Tech as the Netcomm NF4V.  They also have the D-Link DSL 2870B which someone linked to withy your GrabOne offer.
