I Have been looking around trying to find information but still have some questions ha.

1. We are moving into an appartment in St Lukes and wondering if we were to get Fusion will there be a wiring and connection fee? Because I remember reading somewhere that they have to do something with appartments?

2. Will the quality of phone calls and the internet be alright that we are within an appartment complex, or does it more rely on how far away we are from the exhange, we will be in Morning Star Place so guess we will be on the Mt. Albert exchange?

3. Been reading that Xnet blocks smtp? Because I have a couple email address with Ihug since that is what the old folks use, is it possible to use these through Outlook or will I have to start to migrate to Gmail. Ha.

4. Are there any start up costs besides getting a router and phone?

I'm sure I will think of more as they come to my head haha

You should be fine in an appartment, unless your apartment builing provides you with a phone service which they charge you for directly. There are a few out there that have their own pabx and you get an extetion with a ddi. (this is pretty uncommon tho.)

Also make sure you provide as much information about the address when you apply as appartments can sometimes be hard to track down for provisioning!
