Has anyone recently had fibre installed over a shared driveway where consent wasn't required? https://blog.chorus.co.nz/landaccess/

 

Just wondering how long it would take Chorus to get back to me regarding whether I need consent from my neighbour. They weren't keen to sign the consent form until they had an idea of the work required.

 

It's been over four weeks now and I haven't heard anything about my install. 

 

I've seen Chorus in my street doing other installs over the last week or two and I applied for fibre the first day it was marked as available in my area on my ISP's site so they have started on others.

 

I've messaged my ISP a few days ago but no reply yet.

 

Thanks

Give up messaging people and ring someone...... It's probably been forgot.

I had previously been caught up with UFB consent nightmares with our shared driveway (9 houses). We were never able to get approval from all the owners so UFB never progressed. 

 

In October, under the new rules, I ordered UFB again and 3 weeks later the work was scoped, then went to "build"(?) whith physical work starting last week.   

 

So, for me at least, the new rules/processes work!

 

We are in Pukekohe. 

 

Cheers

I'm currently in the 10 day notice period for any objections to the scoping

How many neighbours share the driveway? Depending on that number, the order could be sitting with Chorus' complex design team. If that is the case, they will be working on the network design to get the fibre from the street to each dwelling who shares the common driveway, after which they will know the full impact of the work and can determine the consent class your order will fall under. Having said that, the only way to know for sure what is happening with your order is to ask your ISP to check the order status with Chorus and report back to you.

 

If your ISP is Spark, flick me a private message and I will find out for you.

Thanks for you reply's everyone. Naturally just after I posted this I had a response from Big Pipe that they haven't heard anything yet from Chorus so they'll chase them up.

It's just me and one other neighbour up this driveway (I'm at the back) so it shouldn't be too complex, although I did wonder it they'd plan to do both houses at once.

An interesting question. I'm down a long driveway and the guy that lives at the end of the driveway wants to install fibre. I don't particularly want to move to fibre just yet, but since they'll be taking it right past my house I was wondering if they'd run the fibre to my house to save time later.


Banana?

Just wondering. Why wouldn't you want to move to Fibre?

They may well run the micro duct up to your place to save having to dig another trench and do it again later.

A number of reasons: I'm only renting this place, there's a severe lack of powerpoints throughout the entire house (the open-plan lounge, dining, kitchen area has a total of three single powerpoints, and they're already overloaded with stuff), there's only two of us living here so we don't have high-traffic requirements.

 

I'm currently on ADSL and yesterday received a letter from Vodafone saying that they were automatically upgrading me to VDSL and would be sending me a new modem/router. A couple of years ago a bought a nice Netgear modem/router that I've got set up just how I want it (VPN access, using Netgear's Dynamic DNS, etc) so I hope whatever they send me I can get configured how I want it.
