On the Chorus map it says my address will get fibre "between Jul-2014 and Jun-2015", would there be a more precise time available somewhere?

Think you should be happy with that tbh :P At least it's not "UFB deployment dates for your area are still being developed."

I got a more accurate date (down to the month) by asking an ISP.

Simple answer - Yes there is somewhere - No its not publicly available - RSPs are given updates closer to the actual commisioning date by Chorus

Which is still better than not being on the plan at all :(





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

I wonder if you could some information from council as I would have thought you would need consent to drill / excavate the footpaths ?

Could be depressing to find out there is no consent applied for yet for your street...

Ditto, with congestion it's maddening...

As a side note, Outram lost power from mid-afternoon on Saturday until Sunday morning, fortunately I've a UPS on my setup so I don't lose data on my server if something goes awry... iin the evening got UPS power on the modem etc for about three hours until the UPS finally gave out. Done some speed tests and still suffered congestion down to 0.9Mbps so the backhaul from our exchange must be OK meaning the congestion is somewhere else on the Chorus network, am I correct...?

Digging the street and installing ducting doesn't mean a lot - it can still be many, many months before things go live.

Correct, they started doing our street in late Nov 2013. We got fibre installed early April, but it wasn't working until nearly May. So about 5 months from start to finish.
