Just got quoted $2,600 to connect vdsl to a property that already has a copper line and returned a good line check
I've queried what the cost is actually for and waiting to hear back, seems a lot of money to punt on hopefully having a good connection
Since chorus dont have any techs/installers on there payroll, it all gets contracted out to visionstream who then hire contractors to do the actual work. $1000 will go to chorus for their admin fees then $1000 will go to visionstream for their admin fees and the installer would be lucky to see $600 for his work.
You guys are vastly underestimating the costs involved. Suffice to say, if it were all that profitable and fantastic, we wouldn't have just had a round of redundancies nation wide through one of the three primary contractors in November. The quoted prices assuming two cable joints, network design, etc. are pretty darn fair.
