Looks like the Chorus Network Upgrade Map has just been updated to show indicative new UFB areas up to 2016.

Appears to have gone down. I think they are testing as the seach function wasn't working for me and then I refreshed into:

Yep, looking like the 32nd of Nevember for me too. Luckily I get <25Mbps anyway (but I don't have a master filter, shhh).

And yet I wonder why little ole' Masterton will have most of the town done by the middle of next year. Left after that is a few small holes.

The fibre running past my house has just been 'Activated' as per Chorus' Maps.

"between Jul-2014 and Jun-2015" for me. Better than the big question mark that was floating over it before!

It looks like the VDSL areas are shown on there now too, although the cabinet names don't show up.

Same for me (also in Palmy) - frustrating thing at the moment is they are currently deploying in the street behind me! There is still a huge chuck missing from the west-wide of town too (Awapuni area).

Perhaps I am misreading it, or mis-using it, but you can't subfilter on the different ufb time periods any more? So I can't just show 2014 or 2015? Also using marginally different blue colours is very confusing!

well im using ubiquity gear to get ufb to my new place in massey from daytona road. sure beats having adsl2+ which is the only one available at my new address according to the chorus sat and still no indication for ufb. slight increase in latency by a few ms but speedtest.net results roughly more or less the same as if i was plugged directly in. Im on the 10/30 plan.

Just finished doing a site test yesterday to do the same thing, and also planning on using Ubiquity to do the same. What distance are you running over, good line of sight etc?

Hmm, the dropdown hasn't rendered correctly in your browser. It looks like you're not scheduled until after June 2016 (which is as far as the data goes so far).
