So fibre is cancelled.
I'm stuck with wireless forever.
Which is awful here. So bad on weekends it is barely usable.
Chorus came to do the fibre. They could not feed it via the existing copper. That was no fault of theirs, but in the process of trying, and pulling them, they made it worse.
DSL would then drop out, come back, drop out, every 10 mins or so.
I went onto wireless meantime.
So plann 2. First, after refusing his staple the cable to the rotting fence which the neighbour hits on a regular basis, round corner of fence and off to bedroom! , can't be on ground, can't be this, can't be that, we run a pipe. 20mm MDPE. To the corner of house which is lounge.
On the ground. Which is apparently now marvellous. They commented how great it was, what a lovely job etc etc.
So back he comes again after this inspection and says he will cut across asphalt.
No he won't.
Back and forth and then Chorus says yes cut concrete instead.
back he comes with number 2.
Number 2 happy, yes cut here (on concrete).
No says original one. Can't. They leave again.
Back and forth with Chorus again.
So we cut it.
No says Chorus, need Auckland Council paperwork. (Actually it's on the boundary, not on their bit, and it's not council anyway, it's Akld Transport.
Fine, we feed the damn thing under it then. Do this and it comes up in front of their plinth.
No says Chorus, it's the wrong colour now. And not 200mm down all the way along it.
I give up.
It was meant to be up and running Monday.
I am not changing the colour, not changing anything.
It has cost us money, it has taken days of hard work and it can damn well stay that way and never be used then.
Seems with Chorus, you accept their **** dirty install or nothing.
