Hi team
Quick background - looking at extending driveway and in the process of identifying services, which is this, it doesn't have the usual teleco tube with the grey top anywhere near it


EDIT-so the photo didn't co-operate, working on that

0800 B4U DIG (0800 248 344) They'll either know what it is or be able to send someone to tell you what it is :)

I have been through that, vector and watercare were good.  Chorus is undefined and the provided service map shows no services coming from the street to either my house or neighbours either side.

This is a Telecom (Spark) Coax cable splitter terminal used for distribution of the First-Media TV service when it was in operation in Auckland and Wellington  - Unless you had a coax run up you driveway to a termination Box (not an ETP but bigger grey thing ) then there will be nothing on your side of the boundary. Last time I heard some of this network was still in operation around the Howick Area but I cant confirm.


If you PM me you address Ill have a look at the service plans and give you an idea of what else is around you.

Ah, too easy!!
Is this kind of thing now dead permanently.  Have read a blog about it being fibre, but that didn't sound right?
