They don't allow their sale. Plus once removed, they're only good as door stoppers as they can't be used at a different address than the one they were assigned to.

it is on the back and next to the chorus logo it says do not remove (2nd) photo  - haveing a closer look @ the photos - the transporting capping plug is still in the optical port - so I suspect that it has never been installed ( the provisioning tech would remove and take it away on install)

 

Stolen or rubbish

maybe someone from Chorus needs to send Turners a friendly email (erin.askin@turners.co.nz)

 

 

 

looks like I was too slow with my reply......

 New post: My fibre is not working. Just installed my new ONT that I got of Trademe, but it's not working!! My ISP are sooz uselessness I need help reelly urgent coz I've already disconnected my copper that my ISP says is unreliable and it faults 30000 times a year or something. The trademe seller is not answering my emails!!!

 

NB: bad spelling and grammar for extra emphasis 

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Try hooking two ONTs together in series. Works a treat and gives ya interwebz*2.

These pop up every so often, think it comes.from liquidation sales where the liquidator doesnt spend time working out what actually belongs to the company and just sells the lot to turners

I emailed them a couple of time to say the units actually belongs to enable/chorus but they aren't interested
