Chorus has advised that our area of Paraparaumu/Kapiti is lucky enough to have fibre available as of last week.  Absolutely gutted that there are no ISP's that provide a link to the Pram exchange for the connection to the Chorus fibre......this really is a "horse before the cart" scenario....

Would anyone out there from any of the ISP's have a time-frame or an estimate of time that there will be a "link" to connect the sunshine coast to a the amazing speeds of fibre?  Fully hoping Snap will get in first, I know you can do it, I want your plans, here's my money!!!!!!!

Hi All,

I just checked with our Network Build people and Paraparaumu/Kapiti is currently under build with us, they did not have a specific time-frame for this, but said it wont be far away as our network is now actually live there (just not ready for UFB/GPON customer connections yet). Currently we are at 17 UFB areas, and we will have all UFB areas completed by mid this year.

Other sites we have under build stage at the moment are Whangarei, Whanganui, and Whakatane, no ETA on them at the moment but we will be announcing them live soon.
