Wheelbarrow01: I also know of cases where the pole was too decayed and dangerous for the Chorus tech to climb - resulting in a further months long wait for Wgtn Electricity to replace or make safe that pole.

I'm in a similar situation to this. Not quite as bad as your friends one by the sounds of it but Chorus still said the pole needs to be replaced before they'll install fibre. In the process of saving up for this unbudgeted expense.

Not liking the sound of the delays Wellington Electricity are putting into the system though.

johnr: Update:

job being delayed as consent is required from the Wellington Electricity Power Company due to 2 x span road crossing is required

Ouchie - double whammy right there. Consent from Wellington Electricty required, plus council consent for the actual road crossing will have to be sought as well.....

The views expressed by me are not necessarily those of my employer Spark NZ Ltd
