oxnsox: Folks with fibre.....
How long did it take for the fibre to go in the pipe once it was in the ground?

They've just started in my street and I'm keen to know how long before 8 might actually have dark fibre at the door.


If they are installing tubeing in your street - then the answer is the fibre dosent get installed untill you apply for it through an RSP and then it is generealy installed and operational withing 4 working days (That is if there are no conditioanl hold ups - eg Muti dwelling, ROW , Civils requirements, permits, access isues etc)

Dont forget that the communial network build, testing and certification for had over can be 2 to 3 mths from the first dig in the ground.


and if you want dark fibre then there must also be the equivalent at the other end




they started in my Street at the end of November last year and im still waiting 5 months later, so it's not a quick process


Just a question but what are you waiting for? as your area, if started in november, would have more than likely be handed over around january



no idea , they have put in a cabinet, been up the poles and filled everything in months ago but im still waiting to get the word that ufb is available and i can install it 



My question was more on the lines of who are you waiting for to tell you? Have you allready asked an RSP?



they said they will tell us when its ready to go and i have checked all the address checks on the isp's to see if i can get UFB nothing. Never thought to ring someone  lol

Knowing my luck, it'll get installed right before I move out. It's happened before. :(

There are two Chorus trucks just down the street, and a couple of holes. Please be fibre!

Wow, that would've been disappointing :(

I've been told October for my street, but the sooner the better! I wonder how much lead time there is between the first work and go-live; does anyone know?

Thanks. If it is indeed fibre then that's a good sign. I saw one of the neighbours talking to the Chorus guys so I might ask him if I see him in the next couple of days.

Well if you want to get going now, suggest you find someone in the zone and get a wireless link into your place. Pay half the costs and both of you will be happy
