I've been doing some research and came across a couple of thread here on GZ regarding UFB installs. I'm about to move from a VDSL-enabled home to a UFB-ready apartment, and would like to keep my current Airport Extreme (802.11ac) as the only network device in the house.

I've checked with Snap and they apparently don't do untagged ports. Are there any providers in NZ that do it?

I'm looking for: untagged, unlimited, naked 100/20.

You can get a Mikrotik switch to put in front that will handle the V-LAN tag. Flick me a PM if you need one.





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?

Yep, we do untagged UFB.

100/20 unlimited naked will cost you $79/m

no term contract.

If the apartment already has UFB installed, (i.e. already has an ONT)  then should just be a day or two to get you up and running.  If it's 'Fibre ready' but not yet installed, then could be anything between 2 weeks and 6 months, depending on what the landlord means by 'fibre ready'

We currently only offer UFB in greater Wellington and greater Auckland, but adding other regions soon.

Mynxnet does, and I believe that MyRepublic does too.

I think you just convinced me to move from Snap.

Last question: what's your policy on traffic shaping/throttling?

You can get a "real" static IP address for a $45 one off fee.

Correct, they use CG-NAT but you can make a one off payment of $45 to get a static IP.

Edit: DarkShadow beat me to it!

MyRepublic and Compass do untagged, with DHCP.  MyRepublic are CGNAT and charge a one-off $20 fee for a static, public IP.

Is Bigpipe untagged-with-PPPoE or untagged-with-DHCP?  The former places much more load on your router's CPU.

Untagged with PPPoE IIRC.

I'm about to move from a VDSL-enabled home to a UFB-ready apartment,



I'm always really nervous when I read this.  Landlords mean many different things when they say "It's UFB ready", and the Chorus map is quite misleading - just because an apartment block is in the UFB zone, doesn't mean you can get it quickly installed, or even at all.

OP - For that reason, I checked and had a look at your case and the specific address.  Not great news unfortunately.  One of our team will email you the details shortly (If they haven't already)

Indeed you are right, and I thank you for being so proactive. Apparently the building managers/owners declined consent for fibre to be installed. cry
