I recently moved to CHCH in an area called Northwood. I applied for braodband service but Telecom told me that all the available prots is full and the cabinet has reached full capacity so there is no braodband available. I have to wait for someone to relinquish their broadband service before I can get connected. They told me to wait 6 months before they install new equipment. Has someone out there who has had a similar experience? Do I have to wait 6 months (or more) to get braodband or is there other ways to get braodband with other companies?

Have you checked with TelstraClear to see if they have cable in Northwood?

Failing that, you'd have to look at wireless or mobile options.

I believe there is no cable out in northwood, and I believe there is no broadband either, what's the point of nice subdivision with no FTTN services? Undecided

I tried TelstraClear and you are right, there is no cable service in Northwood. The bad thing is that all my neighbours around me they all have braodband service. cos they moved in 2 years ago when Northwood is not populated.  Now they have more houses than the ports availiable in the cabinet, and Telecom is not willing to install new cabinet for next 6 months or longer! This is why Telecom is having a bad reputation for their slow service.
