I read somewhere in this forum a few months ago that people have until February 2015 to get the wiring from street to house/building done for free by Chorus. I cannot find anything on their website about this.

The "deadline" might have been extended, but presumably at some point the wiring will no longer be government subsidised.

Can anyone confirm this?

UFB installs at some point in the future may incur a charge. There is certainly no fixed timeframe for this.

Note this doesn't cover internal wiring (your home wiring) - this will always incur a charge if you want additional work done.

Thanks kawaii and sbiddle.

kawaii: The date of Feb 2015 is obviously relevant to Chorus, though I'm not sure what "implementing a tender process" would mean as such. Anyway I guess whatever I read earlier might have been based on this.
