Hi guys, we live in Henderson, bordering on Henderson Valley (Close to McLaren Park), and they are installing UFB equipment about 1-1.5km away from our house. I was wondering, since "Henderson" is known to be under development for some time, and when I check our address, on the Chrous Map tool, it says that a date for installation in our street hasn't been announced yet, and yet they appear to be getting closer, and closer to our street. I was just wondering, since they are getting so close do you think that they are just going to get even more close, and then start  with our street this coming year, or will they finish up the with the work in Henderson, and then start on our street within a few years?


Reason why I'm asking is that, Orcon's deal with unlimited Fibre data seems so good, and It's perfect whenever Chorus gets down to Fibreising our street.

If it's not on the map it'll be 2015+

Remember the focus is only on residential from year 6 onwards. Residential is not the initial focus.

To be honest, I can't work out what the focus is.  I live on Triangle Road, quite close to a school, which the UFB deployment almost goes out of it's way to avoid.  In fact, zooming out it looks like the Year 3 deployment deliberately avoids every single school in Massey, Ranui, and Henderson, so that deployment can be fleshed out in Sunnyvale of all places, which has zero priority users.

I don't know what definition of "Priority User" Chorus has, but it's not the same as the government's.

School's don't need the UFB rollout or be in a UFB area to get fibre. They're all being connected now, typically direct to the nearest cabinet.

UFB year 2 rollout ends on 30 June 2013.

UFB year 3 rollout ends on 30 June 2014.

No year 4 rollout maps have been released yet.

The UFB zones map shows that it won't extend as far as Candia Road.

Year 4 and 5 shape files were released this week to Chorus customers.

Should be updated into their maps tool next week from memory of what the informer said

That's good to hear. A couple of people I know were wondering when it might be coming to their areas of town.

I live out in Flume Road 10 km of Cambridge - not sure who is providing fibre connection to our road - Ultrafast Fibre originally when they signed off with Crown Fibre Holdings in the coverage map indicated it includes our road but no word after that - would anybody have any idea about this.

According to that, Flume Road is "outside of the UFB build area"

Looking at the CFH map, I'm sorry to say that it looks like a mistake. The description reads "largely within town boundaries" but the blue area on the map extends far past the edges of the town. Alas, Flume Rd doesn't seem to even be covered by RBI DSL :(

Wireless RBI coverage has already been deployed to most of Waikato, including that area. This is the solution for that area.

Thanks guys I have a 8 mb/s wireless connection with a small local company which provides excellent service - but would like the fibre for my work - a fair bit of which I do from home. Our ISP seems to think they were informed that our area would get coverage as the Cambdridge build ends.
