Hey guys, might be getting exciting over nothing.
But I came home and someone's sprayed out where the telephone lines are and maybe power ones too.

I was wondering if anyone with insight could tell me what these are?

Is someone preparing to dig up the driveways in our neighbourhood and install some sweet fibre?

Does this mean they're going to start work in a month?

Does this have anything to do with fibre at all.

If anyone knows, would love to hear your response,

Woolston ferrymead. TI Rakau drive. I was meant to upload photos but it didn't.

Telephone cable markings are purple, it also has orange red and light blue markings.

Hope this helps. If anyone knows how to upload photos on an Android I can send some through

Check Enable network's map, it might indicate when fibre is coming to your area.
