I currently am renting a granny flat in Hamilton adjoined to the main house where the landlord lives. The main house has it's own phone line and ADSL2+ connection. According to this website it shows that the main property is able to recieve UFB, however when entering our address which is GFLT1/11 Street Name Ave, it shows as unavailable. 

Would it be possible to get UFB connected via over head wiring or is my only option to get UFB connected at the main house and have the CAT 6e cable run from the ONT to my PC.

Hi There,

My guess is that it will depend on whether or not your property has it's own title.

If you contact Ultrafast Fibre at or on 0800 FIBRE LTD they will be able to advise you.
