Hey guys,

We're picking where to rollout Bigpipe UFB next. Same plans as Auckland - all Unlimited, first month free with no term contract. (BYO modem). 

$79 100/20
$99 200/20
$129 200/200 

Let us know what town you're in and if you'd hook up to Bigpipe UFB.

Cheers.

I'm keen, I am in Wellington but UFB is not scheduled to be available until June 2015.  I hope it will be earlier as the initial digging of the streets has been done and the vans have departed.

You should definitely come to Christchurch next!  Currently on VDSL with you guys but would love to jump up to fibre!

Wellington would make the most sense as a business decision imo.

Question though, are you sticking to Chorus areas first, or will you consider moving into Enable's territory in chch and UFF in Hamilton? Hopefully you're not staying chorus only and can move onto these two after Wellington.

Actually, where are most of your customers (ignoring Auckland)?

We're open to Hamilton or Christchurch, student areas are quite important to us as the no term contracts suits them really well. (They don't have to pay an ETF at the end of the uni term with Bigpipe). 

We have a whole heap in Hamilton, Wellington and Dunedin.

Hamilton then please. Happy to be your guinea pig. Already have UFB with another ISP so switch should be fast?

Whakatane - its small but beautifully formed and we (as in our house) will have UFB available end of November. And yes we'd be interested.

Putaruru, but you'll need to convince an LFC to roll out to our town first:)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
