The chorus availability map was updated around the end of december, for my location on the street It updated to say 'Available' this coincides with the signage stating UFB installations, and the men working the street. 




How long before ISP's will actually allow me to signup for this servicce, if it has been installed.

My ISP let me sign up about two weeks before the map said "available", and I was therefore the first in the street to get it. Ask your ISP to do a manual check and you'll probably be able to order it now.

Not all ISPs sells UFB in all areas. Make sure your ISP actually is selling UFB in your city first.

Aside from this, Chorus can be pretty slow at getting UFB records updated once fibre is done on your street - especially over the Christmas break. If it hasn't been done within 2 months then give your ISP a call and ask them to do a manual check.

Was intending to get calling this evening, and found that our property is now recognised by ISP's online tools. In this case it's taken ~30 days to be available in the plan selection screens.  Thanks for your responses.
