Hi All

 

We have a rental and its vacant, so we are taking the opportunity to do a bit of renovating/redecorating and want to just get the UFB infrastructure set up (ie fibre from road to ETP, ETP, ONT etc)

 

What is the best way to get this setup and not signup for any services, I rang up Chorus and they said contact ISP

 

Should I just sign up to a ISP with no contract/no termination with a promo say 2 months free and then terminate when new tenants move in??

You have to sign up with an ISP you have zero choice

Make sure it's a zero term contract

You have to sign up with a RSP to get an install.

Unless you can convince Chorus that you are actually a property developer.

Dunno if my experience applies to you but here is what I did;

 

I installed ducting complete with a drawstring from my street boundary into the house where I wanted the ONT. I followed the recommendations for builders and electricians on the Chorus web site. Chorus were only to happy to use this ducting to install fibre.

Did they install without you connecting through an ISP?

No.

 

Sorry I was not being clear. The point I was trying to make is installing ducting or conduit at the time of renovation or repair is sufficient preparation and makes for an easy install for Chorus when they turn up as arranged by the ISP.

I'm in ChCh, 'Enable' did the install for me without an order from an ISP. 

 

They were the ones who came door knocking down the street...

 

Hopefully Chorus will offer the same service, but at a guess Enable most likley now offering this service given they have finished laying fibre around all ChCh streets (so need something else to do)!

Chorus does offer this service, but only in limited areas, they probably don't have enough techs to do the whole country at once.
