I'd rather get rid of them as they are ugly and I need to keeps trees trimmed etc to avoid them.
Does anyone know who i need to contact to get these removed?
Edit: I am in Christchurch
Spyware: Since when do Chorus do fibre installs in Christchurch.
TimA: Call Vodafone on 0508 888 800 to get cable removed.
DravidDavid: I'm pretty sure Chorus was supposed to remove the telephone wire upon installation. I could be wrong, but my understanding from other posts on the forums is that you arn't supposed to have the ability to connect both. Something to do with some crazy council(s) rules.
Otherwise, I'm not sure who you could contact to have them removed. It's been suggested before today, so it's hardly original...But you could always have an "accident" while "trimming" your trees.
EDIT: Read the Christchurch part...Maybe those crazy rules only apply to Auckland, haha :)

Previously in strong winds the Vodafone cable had come loose from the street pole and was only being held up by someone elses phone cable. It took 4 phone calls (with very long wait times) and a very angry email before anyone dealt with it. Vodafone support weren't interested because I am not a customer, and Downer won't touch it without a request from Vodafone. In retrospect I should have told them to remove it back then instead of just fixing the street pole.
I'm anticipating another frustrtaing battle to get anything done and was hoping someone might know of a better way to get it sorted other than Vodafones helpdesk
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.
