Thought I'd ask the question on the forum so if anyone is in the same position then they know what to do.

 

I'm about to order a new connection (UFB with Enable/ONT to be installed) with Spark for a non-residential address.

 

It's a sports club on Council land (we own the buildings). Enable and Christchurch City Council have given me the thumbs up. The questions being, can I order a residential type connection? or does it need to be a business connection?

 

We are not a charity however we're classed as a GST Registered Non-Profit.

From a service type point of view, nothing is to stop you from ordering a residential plan.

I got a charity in an industrial area signed up to Spark's residential fibre plan no problem.

It really depends whether Enable have categorised the address as a business premise or a residential premise in their addressing system. If it has been categorised as a business premise by Enable, their order system physically won't allow us to request a residential plan offer. It can be changed, however Enable may require some sort of proof that it is not being used for business purposes.

 

The issue here is that it's also not strictly being used for 'residential' purposes either (ie nobody actually resides at the property) but I am happy to try and get an answer from one of my contacts at Enable if you would like? Just flick me a PM with the address details.

 

For the record, I have run into this issue before at a unit titled warehouse apartment development where the ground floor of each unit has a warehouse space whilst the upstairs has a living space.
