So currently Spark doesn't have a UFB Handover with Chorus in Tauranga and it seems no one else does either apart from Trustpower.

And WXC. :)

Still no call back or availability confirmed from WCX...... frown

I don't want no sugar in it - thank you very much

Got a call back from WXC who confirmed they could offer me a fibre internet service and VoIP - Cool!

Alhough i have been here before with other ISP's so i remain SLIGHLTY dubious....

Anyway - they did seem familiar with the handshake issues and stuff, but confident that wouldnt be an it looks like I have a Trustpower alternative.....Still need to use Unotelly, but i suspect thats not a bad thing....and possibly a fairly quick install....a case of cautious crossed fingers.....

I don't want no sugar in it - thank you very much

WxC were the original ISP doing these Tauranga Chorus fibre subdivisions.

All the best, I'm sure WxC will work great for you.

Yep, WxC have been doing fibre longer than anyone else & their VoIP product is to notch.

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?

old3eyes: In the xDSL world Chorus was able to offer what they call a Tail Service where if you as a RSP didn't have any interconnection in a particular area they could "Backhaul" the internet connection to where you wanted it to be. Such as if you wanted to provide internet to someone in Dunedin but your RSPs Datacentre was only in Auckland, Chorus would offer at a particular price to take the customers traffic from the Dunedin POP up to Auckland. With UFB the LFCs are no longer able to offer that

Thank you I mostly understand this now. Why are they no longer able to offer that with UFB?
