TDLR: Enable Networks (Christchurch), offering to do plan/scope and build and leave ONT ready on wall (not live though), before I contact chosen ISP to 'order' fibre.
Last week Friday, my wife answered a door knocker representing enable. They left a flyer and also my wife gave them my contact deets.
The intention of the door knocker I thought was to drum up business to connect to fibre (which has been in the ground outside for about 6 years and Im on VF ADSL until recently getting pushed onto VDSL for free). Im on VDSL because I havent got around to doing my internal works i.e. install the unifi AP i brought, install the wall cabinet I brought and move the ethernet run from the lounge to the garage where I want the cabinet and ONT etc).
Anyway, I got a text this morning from Enable telling me to log into (link supplied) and organise my plan and build dates for my 'recent order'. OK WTAF? So I called and as it turns out Enable is offering to do the plan/scope and build and leave it all completed before I actually call my ISP. COOL. This means I can get the fibre and ONT all cabled up to where I want it before the hassles of choosing an ISP (at this stage I feel I need to leave VF and move to Spark).
So, my plan visit is in two weeks time and Ive set the date of the build a week later.
Right, just need to find someone to help me install the unifi AP, hang my rack mount cabinet and pull through a new ethernet cable from lounge to garage (and I guess pull though one from the room where it used to end up to the garage).
updates as they progress.
