The New Zealand Telecommunications Forum (TCF) has today published new guidelines on how to install telecommunications wiring within a premises.

 

The purpose of the guidelines is to inform cable installers on the principles and best practices of planning, installing and maintaining a premises wiring system that will deliver good long-term telecommunication service performance and reliability for New Zealand consumers. In addition, the TCF has produced information to help consumers understand how their property should be wired for optimum delivery of broadband services.

I noticed when they released the consultation draft that they now have Cat6a as the minimum spec cable. Seems like overkill for residential premises.

They should get people to stop daisy chaining jack points first. Before worrying about things like cat6a cable.

Standards need regulation to require them. If it's an optional standard it is still just a guideline.

Not like the LFCs will stop installing to places that have crap house wiring. Not their problem.

thats true, but new builds should be required to follow the TFC guidelines and wire for a smart home.

i recently went to an open home on a brand new house in new subdivision in my area, 2 phone jacks in the entire house, thats it. The are being marketed as hi specd properties, but zero consideration to phone/data connections or even fibre as i believe they are in a fibre only area.

its most likely cost-cutting developers who think "well, everyone uses cordless phones and wifi these days, so why would they possibly need more than 1-2 phone points or ethernet cabling"

That's definitely what the housing market needs, more legal requirements when building a house.

Really needs something to educate what not having it does to resale value and the cost of adding it after the fact. Particually when it's a house with a warranty.

Same for the aircon installs etc that people put off till later and then whine about having capping on their new house.
