Hi all,

FYI...we were thinking of moving back into Waiuku but there is now an overflow from the real-estate booom in Auckland and people are instead buying in Waiuku/Pukekohe/Tuakau/Pokeno..... it ended up that we couldn't do the move as prices have gone up in Waiuku and we would just loose out on moving/commission costs here in Tuakau..

However Chorus have signs up stating the UFB ducting is going in fro July to I think it was November this year and yes they are doing this now.... so I guess they "blow" in the fibre later as per their web site....

Rgds....Laurie

Parts of Waiuku are listed as getting UFB by April 2014, while some parts aren't until 2016.

The signs state its the "ducting" they are laying now...which they are actually doing.....I may see if I can get some photos etc.....and put them in here...

I thought the ducting/fibre was laid at the same time effectively..???.......Rgds.....Laurie

I think they put the ducting in first then sort of push the fibre through the ducting at a later date.

Yep the actual fibre doesnt get put in until you actually request service.

So once the ducting is in thats all that needs doing.
