So I've confirmed there are over a quarter of the apartments in my complex with fibre, including the one directly below us. I was over the understanding that the body corp was the one to give consent for the entire complex. Is this not the case? I don't understand how they could scope, and not have consent. The process was supposed to be made easier for people in MDU's I thought.
MDU's are not supposed to be easier, they still have a full design and consent process because it's considered invasive no matter what. They wouldn't take any benefit from recent legislation change.
The answer to your question though is yes, once an MDU has consent, that should be it. You request an installation and it should be simple particularly when, as you say, other apartments in the complex have it.
Sounds like Chorus is being Chorus and not being on the right page. Classic as.
