Enable targets faster deployment – as it announces its roll-out plans for remaining Christchurch areas

Coverage Map (PDF)

Finally, nice to see their longer term plans. And it looks like they have got rid of the silly map on their website that still showed all areas as proposed. 
Looks like I'm due sometime in the next year. Can't wait.

Was one of the first to criticize enable's previous mapping efforts, but will also be one of the first to commend them on a much better effort.


Great stuff enable.

Well at least I know where I stand now with getting fibre.

3 years away for me too.  Guess I best get busy and start putting up more radios on my network cause I am not waiting that long to set up my servers.

I find it interesting their choice of colour for "Fibre Available Now", its identical to the colour they use for large open areas of green space that have no Fibre (eg Hagley Park, Riccarton Racecourse, Fields along Cranford St etc). Makes their progress look even more impressive tongue-out

Nice to see my In Law's will have Fibre available next year, the old man's been saying for a while he could use more Fibre in his life.

Totally agree. Previous effort was terrible, this is great. The PDF map could do with better colour graduations as it's pretty subtle, but I'll deal with that...

Its good to see some sort of timeline for the rest of the build for the rest of the city. 


What I found interesting is that Steve Fuller suggested in The Press that they would be open to further extending the network once current build was complete

If you can get good rate VDSL then you should, other wise if you can get cable you should do that next.

this really has to be about just using the best resources in the street that we can until all the upgrades are done.

Wonder when chorus will update their rollout schedule? The current one only goes as far as June 2016.

On the tool that Retail Service Providers can access the Chorus maps go all the way to 2020 with well defined shapes for each area. There is even a link where you can download all the shapefiles and load them on your own site should you choose to. 

I know there was the link on Koordinates.. But that's really out of date now: https://koordinates.com/publisher/BroadbandMap/data/

I see your pain brother....  but there is HFC in some of the area and the VDSL is ok if you're close enough to the cabinet too.

Personally I just built a wireless network over my part of the suburb.
