Loujiggy: Thanks again everyone for all your help.
Will be moving to Whitby (Discovery drive, area) so not sure if that's an older or newer area... seeing as we have been in Johnsonville since we arrived in NZ 6 months ago, still not sure of the areas.
When I put the address in the Orcon website, they said they could do fibre. I am just looking now at the other providers you have mentioned too.
first year rollout, go for fiber forsure!
