Ok UFB is available in our address, we are the second apartment in. Its garaging under the apartments. How would they run fibre to our apartment? Its all concrete, tiles, brick, mortar etc etc.

Is it possible?

There may be existing conduit they can use (not likely).  Otherwise they'll probably have to cut two holes in the concrete.

One to run the thrusting machine in, and one where it comes back out again.  Then they can thrust under the majority of the concrete.

Do I have to gain consent from the landlord first before getting a line installed?

Thrusting concrete, sounds like serious work. I know there is conduit under in the carparking but I think thats electrical and maybe for copper telephony etc

Chorus ( or whoever is the local Fibre Company) Will require premissionf from you, the landlord and the bosy corporate,

 

Be prepared for a wait, Chorus said yesterday that istalls "down shared driveways" were taking on average 130 days,

While those in MDUs ( apartment buildings) were taking 110 days ..

yes it is but you wont know that unless you ask them.

i would be asking the landlords permission before you requested fibre in the first place.

Order it and find out. Check with your service provider by my understanding is you can cancel anytime before its connected up with no cost, so not really any risk to trying.

Don't be in a hurry tho, so only order UFB after you already have dsl installed.

worry about getting internet sorted, so get ADSL/VDSL first then worry about UFB, at least you will have some broadband.

i imagine getting UFB wont be a quick process for you.
