Just received a letter through the post saying that the street I'm on will be getting UFB soon. The street also has Vodafone cable on the same street which begs the question does Vodafone offer their services on UFB in areas which have cable or is it cable only? I'm mainly thinking of moving to Vodafone cable but if UFB going to offered maybe I'm better off just waiting it out with VDSL till UFB comes online.

Why would they use Chorus's network and have to pay them when they could just make them use their HFC network and get all the $$$$$
