One other thing to check being a smaller set of units is what your title is.  Most are on unit titles, which don't help you, but if you have a cross-lease or some other form of title, you should check your title (more importantly, their title, but they should be the same) for an easement that allows access for telecommunications.  If that is specified on your title, they might* be obliged to grant reasonable consent.

But copper communications satisfy the easement

Good luck.  Go gentle. I'd put the suggestion to them that they allow the install to go ahead but only if they're happy with how Chorus plan to do the install as you can cancel at an point.  They'll need to say yes to the install first then be involved with the scoping.  I wonder if they can be put down as a site contact for the job?

Can mention that the install might only be free until 2019 (but will probably be extended, but no need to mention that bit) then they might be keener.

Normally the preferred option is to run along a similar route to the copper if its suitable, and sometimes theres an option to remove the copper cable so it simply gets replaced. You could promise to request the scoper to discuss where the FTP will go (small box where the fibre goes into the building) before starting the install.





Qualified in business, certified in fibre, stuck in copper, have to keep going  ^_^
