I just checked on the Chorus UFB availability map and am thinking - did the bit that says 'UFB fibre up to 100 Mbps by Nov-2014' change to 'UFB fibre up to 200 Mbps by Nov-2014' ? Anyone else see this or is it a figment of my deranged imagination ? Just curious.

Nope, you are not mad, 100 does indeed appear to have become 200Mbps , woo hoo 
Although half my devices still only have 10/100 Ethernet ports :(

Chorus have had 200Mbps plans available since 1st July.

Only a couple of ISPs have started selling them yet though (bigpipe, snap, maybe a couple of others)

Check out 200/20 for $99 unlimited, 200/200 for $129 unlimited

Thanks, its nice to know reports of my insanity were (obviously) completely untrue.

Yes I would check out Bigpipes offerings, chaps, but you'll have to appear in Whakatane first......
