We are in central Auckland, on a shared driveway (right of way) with 5 other properties.
This new small subdivision was completed late 2013. Some of the new home builds (including ours) are nearing completion.

I’m hoping we will be able get fibre, without needing any consent from all the other property owners (as there are vacant properties / awol overseas owners!)


1. The land titles have an easement “Right to convey telecommunications and computer media”, with Grantee “Chorus NZ Limited” -- Does this cover UFB?

2. The sections *already* each have a hybrid copper/fibre (white, blue, red, black) cable, running from the road to each section, in a 20mm green communications pipe. (Installed when the subdivision was done.)

Do you think we will still need consents?

I assume they will only need to connect us at street level, and install an ONT in our garage. (e.g. no driveway works whatsoever.)

Your ISP will be able to tell you the consent status of your place.:)

It will depend whether the subdivision was reticulated for copper or fibre.

 

There should not be hybrid cable running from the road to the boundary.  Opti-C@t hybrid cable is suitable for indoor use only.

 

I suspect what you are looking at is a 2-pair copper cable to the boundary.

 

Please DM me your address & I will check the subdivision reticulation records and advise what was built and what the options for fibre will be.

No idea about the consents, but what does the Chorus network map tell you? Is fibre available in your street yet?

Regarding the cable, you are right, as I'm not exactly sure what the cable is.

 

I've DM'd you the address. Thank you.

Haven't got an ISP quite yet, just doing the ground work so once the electrician has finished his work, I can get the ball rolling on sorting out the internet ready for us when we move in (hopefully in a few months from now.)

Yep, fibre has recently come available in our location.

Right, thanks.

 

Chorus map: UFB fibre up to 200 Mbps & Broadband > 10 Mbps

 

 

 

I'm hoping the following (below) will allow us to bypass the whole neighbour consenting process. Otherwise it may awhile before we get fibre :(
