What we can prove works well and other practices we learn along the way may make its way into our Regional ISP offering (Full Flavour Bay of Plenty).
Some examples of what we're up to:
An option to enable IPv6-only (with NAT64 / DNS64). I believe this is a first in NZ.
New online ordering/billing/support platform*
New provisioning platform*
New Juniper BNGs with automation integration - the minute Chorus complete the activation of our service on the customer's ONT, the customer's router will get online (DHCP, no VLAN-tagging)
Weekly billing with Stripe integration
*Making use of existing Chorus APIs and new APIs as they become available
What we're after
