My neighbour wants us to relocate the markers which Enable have put on the street presumably to mark where the fibre is. We do not want to do this.

Can anyone advise on this please.

1. Can this be done?
2. If it can, can my neighbour force us to do it?


Thanks for any advice.

Why do they want this done? And where are they located?

To be honest you should just go and tell them to get over it. Reminds me of that person who thought a UFB "Pillar" was ugly and decided to go to the media about it.

People complaining about getting fibre broadband to their door? Yeah... They belong on a Conklin or belong in Outram.

The markers are on the corner of their section and they want to widen their driveway and say they will obstruct this plan.

Your neighbour should be consulting with the Council & Enable. It has absolutelyy nothing do to with you.

Its not up to you to reloacte anything if its on the council reserve - if they want them moved then they will have to arrange with and pay for Enable to do so

That depends.

Once again the issue is nothing to do with you and you should not get involved. They need to contact the local Countil and/or Enable.

Of course if the marker they want to move associates with your Enable service (whether you're connected to it or not), you should insist they contact Enable, or do it yourself just to make sure.

That pillar was pretty small and having a network that is one of the best in the world (at least better than Australia) that will probably increase the value of their house.

Problem is, I don't think people like that see the value of it like that.
It's like people in Wellington who used to complain about Saturn cables. "They block our view!" Of what, all the other cables??

You would hope that the people who are laying and planning it out, are putting in markers in the right place to allow for drives to be widened etc. The smart place is to put them at or near the boundary pegs. The worst thing would be if they put them on the otherside of the drive, so the drive is pinned inbetween the boundary peg and the marker.

Saturn cables is the point. They started with 1 then added so that some bundles became quite big. The telco cables were below the power cables which put them more in the line of sight for many people.

Those saturn cables looked quite pretty. I always knew which one it was - the bottom thick one. 
Unfortunatley we left upper hutt just as the service was launching.

There was only ever 1 cable where I lived. Mind you, some of the ones in Lower Hutt I saw were quite large.

 

The Christchurch ones were quite small (and tidy).
