Hi - we have had Fibre laid in our street, so waiting on Telecom's plans before we make the call of SNAP or Orcon or Telecom.

However my question relates to the Fibre duct from the street to the house.
The house faces North, South Side is the street. Existing Telecom copper junction to the house is the SE corner.

The Fibre duct however has been delivered to the W side of the house.
The house is new (8yrs) solid concrete floors West side of the house has clean walls - and there is no internal cable duct to get from the west side of the house to the east side of the house..
The internal telecom outlet inside the house is in cabled nicely from the SW corner to the office..
I cant see an easy way to get cabling from the SW side of the house to the office.. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on this ? Does the delivery of fibre to the house have to use the duct that was laid ? or ?

We also had issues when the duct to the house was put it... it went thru the sewage pipes that were on the property... took a week, with diggers etc... needed lots of rework so yes Fibre comes with sewage..

Which town/city are you in ?
The answer could be different depending upon who the LFC is, in particular whether or not they have rights of access to the existing duct.

Looks like the Chorus team onsite today agree we have a problem - with the fibre duct being laid to the opposite side of the house to the Copper connection... (no underfloor / under house / basement, no ceiling space)..... The are seeking advice..

Team onsite came up with a good option - the Copper connection to the house came from a different roadside connection point than the Fibre Roadside Junction - about 10mtrs further away.. however the copper line to the house crossed the new fibre duct (at different underground depths) but there were able to reroute the copper line - from the Old Roadside junction to the new Fibre /Junction and then pull the Fibre thru the same copper duct - so Fibre is now at the house.,.. - now the rework inside the house..

The fibre duct to the house from the street (curiously put in on my property without agreement) was unable to be used, however its route crossed underground with the existing Copper Duct to the house - fortunately this intersection occurred under an easily accessible dig - one was about 1m depth and the other about 1.2m. So they redirected the new fibre thru the where the old Copper duct was (at the intersection) - actually replaced the duct with a new duct that combined the two cables - copper and fibre.

So nice solution, one connection point to the house - and existing wiring route to router/modem location was able to be used. Interestingly the Chorus person who arrived to check out the issue, asked about when the Chorus consultation occurred - which never happened.. he noted this should have occurred - and this issue should have been identified at the consultation stage.

Good cooperation between Chorus subcontractors and Chorus. Now waiting for fibre to be lit..

Took a few pix - but decided everyone else had captured the install - however a perspective of the house, fibre duct copper duct, intersection would be helpful - so will share this.
