Congrats Outram and Tim. Now I'll need to open up a thread to why Wakefield is covered but not Foxhill which is only just outside of Wakefield. Like, it is only 5mins away by car.

NZtimbo: Yes, an absolutely fabulous result, I'm sure this forum and the petition were discussion topics and I think Chorus has done the right thing.

The petition, submission to the Commerce Committee, response from Hon Amy Adams and supplementary submission were all well worth while.

Many neigh sayers here will beg to differ...

Thank you all.



Must have been those Outram talking horses wot dunnitsmile

Clears throat, takes a bow, thank you, thank you and thank you...


Was more than the petition I done, the community really wanted to be part of the UFB2 rollout and came up with some great ideas and put together a super plan to show what can be done.
