I am changing from Spark to Vodafone Fibre, also changing from 100mbps/20Mbps to 900Mbps/400Mbps, does this require a physical visit and changes to the ONT, or is this a remote change done by Chorus? 

 

Thanks

No physical visit should be required. Plug in your new router, or re-configure your current one once the changeover happens and you'll be away laughing.

remember to change the configuration for your voice line as Vodafone dont deliver it over the ONT.

I have seen some previous threads, where sometimes changing ISP will result in a different port being used on the ONT. (maybe UFF or Enable areas).

So you may actually need to do some physical site works. But that is just moving the Ethernet cable from port 1 to port 2 of the ONT. Which you can easily do yourself if needed.

I'm sure it's a Fibre connection not FibreX (HFC)
