They have made it pretty clear in the past that they see themselves as being a Telecom wholesale customer rather than installing their own network.

Directly quoted from here:

5. Does WXC have any plans to install their own gear in Telecom exchanges like Orcon and Vodafone?
No – It is very expensive and (in my view) commercially non-viable unless we can saturate all unbundled exchanges. If we did put our own gear in the exchanges it would result in some stranded assets when the cabinetisation program is complete and Telecom exchanges that house that hardware disappear over the next ten years. Other carriers are making that investment and where it makes sense, we may engage them to lease access as an alternative to Telecom.

So does that mean when Chorus put the cabinet in my area I will be connected to it?
I am on a fusion plan.
