In the near future our business will be moving from a local IT environment to the corporate global environment.
The corporate global comms provider is Vodafone and we will be connecting from 3 sites in Auckland to Adelaide.

 

I have been advised by our UK IT project manager that the provisioning time for a 1GB fibre connection will be 6-8 weeks plus any brown-out for the Christmas period. I believe that Vodafone fibre is already in use by other customers in the same sites we occupy, so if this is the case and dark fibre is available, what is the likelihood that the provisioning times could be significantly reduced?

It's surprisingly cost effective considering it's point to point. Plus it's pretty clear they are a pretty decent sized company.

2 months to get a WAN link into High St Auckland, this is with a building that already had business fiber.

Your response matches a couple of conversations I had yesterday with other users who had a WAN connected to a pre-cabled location. Fibre connectivity will remain "8 weeks" in the plan!

The gigabit requirement was the result of a policy that all IT services would be hosted in Australia including file and print. Although 1GB wasn't 10x more expensive than 100MB (probably around 3x) it made enough of an impact to now consider hosting file & print on site in NZ. If this is the case then 100MB with a bit of QoS and data compression should be sufficient.

That sort of timeframe is fairly typical.
