It's not going to make any difference who you go with as a RSP if the issue is one of a pole requiring consent.

Pole issues don’t lie with the provider, but with us to resolve. If the pole belongs to a third party (as most do) then we will need consents from the owner to climb and that often can take a long time. Being that it’s a third party we have little control over that aspect other than to simply keep petitioning the owner.

 

 

 

@Koolme2 If you would like to Private Message us with your address we’d be happy to go into the details with you.

Yeah, definitely not Voyager's fault - and they are generally excellent with customer service. 

@vygrnetworkmonkey may be able to look into things from their end for you, but as has been said, if Chorus are waiting on consent from Unison, there is nothing any ISP will be able to do to speed that process up. 

 

You will more than likely find that Voyager are going to be far better than a lot of other ISPs in regards to customer service.

It comes down to ownership and protection of network - for Unison in this case.

 

In this case, the pole is owned by Unison. No one else is permitted to climb, change or add anything to this pole without express permission.
For Chorus to run the fibre to your location, they need to make a change/addition to the pole - which means they have to seek permission before they can proceed.

 

Having a free-for-all approach can have issues around stability of service not to mention liability issues (who owns the problem?) should something goes wrong.
I've seem it happen a number of times where someone neglects to seek permission, runs a rogue cable, damages or cuts something they shouldn't .. and the resolution time takes longer than your installation has so far.

 

Once permission is obtained from Unison, Chorus will proceed and you'll be connected asap.
Our Provisioning team will let you know as soon as permission is achieved and the tech is scheduled again.

 

In the mean time, fee free to hit up your Prov team member, or PM me :)

Hi @koolme2

 

I have info from Chorus that I'll PM you.

 

The TL;DR version: Chorus haven't delayed anything - their dates were mis-entered in the system visible to us and everything is proceeding on time.

He now has had 2 appointments for running the cable from the pole.

 

Neither time they turned up, no explanation.

 

 

 

Chorus proceeding as normal I see.

 

I told him to moan at Chorus, but he goes back to Voyager.

 

Told him, they can only query Chorus and keep passing on a new date.

 

Sigh.  His is so straightforward too, nothing involved like mine was.

I would have thought by now that Chorus and all the power pole owner companies would have worked out a streamlined system to avoid delays?

 

Guess I was wrong.
