there is no guaranteed time frame, and there is no promises.

The network providers can't do everything right now, someone, somewhere will be first and someone will be last. If the sequence changes you'd have to assume the demand would drive that, which is fair enough.

I'm in the same boat. I can see houses from mine which can get UFB.
Have been looking at setting up P2P wifi but at this stage can't get all parties (mainly my ISP, doesn't want to provision a second port on an ONT) to see eye to eye. Another potential problem is trees in the way which I can do nothing about.

It doesn't make sense to me that according to Chorus' own data my area has a high demand for UFB, but the date for availability is off far into the future, yet other areas with lower demand are getting it earlier. :(
Depending on how much they'd want I'd seriously consider contributing to install costs if it were an option. The UFB cabling along nearby residential streets is all aerial, strung along the power poles.

I'd say that the people making decisions as to how and when have a LOT more data on hand than you do regarding demand and cost.

IT sucks waiting absolutely.

There can be all sorts of unexpected delays, for example when my fibre went in in January there were issues with running it underground so Chorus did a temporary overhead installation. They've been back this week to move it underground - with a non-zero amount of labour required. While this is just one property, I'm sure that there are many other "one-offs" throughout the country that are slowing down the overall process.

The grammar zone is not fully done? Why, that is preposterous!! Surely they should be getting it first.....

Outrageous ;)
