Does anyone here know if telecom wanted to run some lines under some power lines on a pole, would they need to talk to the electricity lines operator and pay a per pole space rental or do they talk to the local city council about getting access? Is there any right-of-way laws that would apply?

Reason I ask is I am thinking of running a cat5 telephone line or something similar to a house down the road from mine and using an ethernet extender over it. Its 8.30pm and still holiday time so i dont think there would be anyone at unison or the council i can ring and ask about it.

Telecom are already sharing the poles and I am guessing they would pay a monthly fee per pole to whoever owns them.

The chances of walking out your front door and seeing Elvis in the morning are higher than your chances of getting permission to do this.

Now If i was planning a network in a small town that happened to be off the fibre-to-the-premesis list? As part of linking a few schools together

Fibre to the premises is only occuring at present in new subdivisons. There is no "list" of towns that will get fibre to the premises because at present there is no rollout, just talk of one.

For access to the poles you'll need to go through planning and resource consent application processes with your local authority and the lines company that owns the poles.

Ok i have just figured it out
I think I just need to register as a Telecommunications network operator with the ministry of economic development.

I am already providing internet services to more than 10 rural households who cannot currently get broadband through telecoms network so I think that qualifies me for the status. That should increase my chances with the electric lines company for power pole access.

I will probably have to wait for the new year before I can find anything out from unison. Thanks sb

Yup being a registered network operator will help a lot with this. My employer got network operator status this year which makes planning and implementing new links between buildings a lot easier. Also no longer have to pay a fortune on subsoil leases to the council.

It was however a reasonably drawn out process getting this status...
