They decided since your copper is still working exceptionally well, they would delay your fibre so that @TimA and @hio77 could get fibre sooner :)

 

 





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.

You must be in the southern part of Beach Haven. I've had fibre here since late 2015.

That is VDSL, its gone faulty again, last time was water in the lead and paper insulated cable that dates back to when phones were invented, the time before that was water in the grey helmet, before that was water in the join up the pole.

 

They are out of pairs that work better to swap it over to, and the last time it was water in the paper cable it was about a 5 days for them to dig it up and fix it. There has been poles being replaced along beachhaven road so ground movement so probably the cable again.

I must be lucky then - I can get ADSL, VDSL and fibre. Come to think of it, the rollout map of fibre for Beach Haven is kind of weird actually.

 

I have a mate around Kauri Park and all he can get is ADSL. No VDSL, and no fibre until at least 2018.

Good to see that chorus still have a sense of humour. That most of one of Auckland's most expensive streets (Paritai dr, Oraeki) doesn't have UFB yet. And won't get it until mid 2018 at least.

Wasn't there a map that showed what properties in the street were on?
Not what is available, but who had what?

The address checker (not a map) on Chorus' homepage shows the current connection speed/type.

Unless I'm missing something, that one only shows availability.
