I had fibre installed a couple of years ago via Orcon, and Chorus never removed the overhead copper cable, nor asked if we wanted to keep it.
I read online that you can request via your ISP to have it removed, which I did.
Over six months of prodding Orcon customer support to get confirmation of my request, they've finally come back saying.
We are in the process of placing this order with Chorus, they will be able to remove the copper lines and advise of any applicable charges, it is possible this will come with no charge but we can not advise this with certainty at this point in time.
Not particularly helpful is it. Has anyone else successfully had their overhead copper removed post-fibre-install?
