Before and after xmas/new year. Chorus have been working in my apartment block putting in UFB, or at least the backbone infrastructure to each floor inturn each apartment can be fed with UFB.

When I first heard about this I spoke to VF who said that UFB was available and they would initiate the order process, providing me with a new account number and promised an email confirming that. 

Nothing has developed so a couple of calls to VF to try and get a status update. The first call, I was promised a call back then nothing.
So chased again yesterday. VF came back to me and said that Chorus were awaiting for a completed consent form before they could proceed.

Upon reading the page concerned multi-person dwellings, aka apartments I'm under the impression that consent has already been provided, which then initiated the "backbone" install of UFB into the whole apartment block. 

Other than potentially getting written permission from my landlord to install the UFB box on the wall, do I really need to go back to the building manager and or body corp to get consent for an individual install?

thanks for reading.

If the apartments are individually owned then yes consent maybe required from the owner , MDU can be quite messy when getting UFB installed
