I've just moved back to NZ and into an Apartment in central Wellington which already has UFB fibre installed. I signed up and have everything ready at home (Modem and UFB box on the wall etc). From my previous experiences of having a NBN fibre connection in Australia, it was Sign up and we had a connection the same day, they just flicked an attribute on the line and it was active.. however here it seems to be taking its sweet time... 5 days so far... 

 

Does anyone have any ideas how long it takes for them to activate a connection when the hardware etc is already installed and has been previously used? Is there any magic to get the ISP or Chorus to speed up the process?

 

Apologies if this has already been asked, I assumed it would have been... but my search foo turned up nothing...

Certainly not always the case though. There might still be an active service in place, maybe they can't locate the ONT based on address alone, etc.

Possibly a hangover from the massive company wide system upgrade we completed over the weekend, during which all provisioning work was halted from Friday night to Monday morning. If there was a delay in submitting your queued order from Spark to Chorus, this may have been held over to Monday instead of being done late last week.

 

That's just a theory - without looking at the order I cannot be sure.
