Hi all,

 

The fibre box outside my house has been hit at some stage and is pretty bent. Do Chorus "own" these? Should they be responsible for fixing it even if the fibre is still working?

Power boxes are likely to be a little reinforced than that, and not generally right beside copper phone line points :)

Possibly an earlier gen fibre totem.

Ping chorusvan a message if you don't want to call them direct. Seems to be up his alley if it is. And can identify it.

Chorus did some mushroom fibre splitters for a while. Fairly old installs.

 

They generally replace them with pits when they get damaged.

I'm seeing galv steel (patchy gray) consistent with the power boxes around here - but if green I'd agree that it's likely fibre

its a power pillar box,  it should have a number on it ...call your local lines company and tell them its been hit and see if they come and fix it....

 

Its not fibre.... (the little grey tube beside it is copper though)

 

This type of box is common on the Kapiti Coast of Wellington, it may have also been used in other regions...
