But not Kuaotunu West :(

Very sucky. Wireless coverage is pretty poor there as well with no real alternatives.  It would be interesting to know why it was excluded.

The ONT model is the Nokia G-140W-C

 

 

 

One of the issues that can occur with the using the ONT as a RGW rather than putting a separate router is if the ONT is installed somewhere awkward, like a garage which can be common, (as there is often where the copper demark is), it can mean the wifi coverage of the house is poor.

 

 

 

While I think it is a good idea it is still to be fully tested out to see how it goes for end customers.

Install dates current are between Dec 2019 and June 2020 however these dates can and do move around month to month (both forward and backwards)

 

 

 

Green dots are existing buildings with fibre (NGA) fibre, such as some of the new subdivisions and schools.

 

 

 

Hahei is getting fibre in Aug and Sept this year.

 

 

 

Whangpoua, Matarangi and Kuaotuna are getting it between now and mid 2020.

 

 

 

Cooks Beach / Ferry Landing is mid 2021.

 

 

 



Could you provide the date for FFP10 in Whitianga? Thanks in advance.

3 bean counters, a ruler and a excel spreadsheet.

 

They tried to get max bang for buck, which basically means max number of dwellings they can service but that also relies on input costs which are reduced with existing fibre / infrastructure in the area. The only cabinet in the Kuaotuna area is next to the fire station. The cost to run extra fibre from there to Kuaotuna West combined with the number of dwellings it didn't make the cut vs some other area.

 

There is additional mobile coverage for Kuaotuna area in RBI 2

Looks like Chorus' dates have slipped a LOT. The "done by June 2020" claim is out the window, with most places showing after that. Some as late as October 2020!

The dates given are usually an estimate, not set in stone and are subject to change. They can also be brought forward if the work is completed early (a relative in Auckland had this happen to them).

Exciting news, Chorus civil workers are currently on my street (Bryce Street). My current "available" date is showing either May 2020 (Residential) or August 2020 (Business), really hope that comes back a bit 😬

 

On the plus side, they have fed the fibre literally about 10CM away from the duct going into my place, it's just behind the fence next to the grey stick thing (I don't know their name). Pics here: https://imgur.com/a/lUsIdE7

 

It seems a lot of areas have already been laid with ducting, but still not available to order yet.

 

Looking at the Chorus map, Kuaotunu have order-able fibre, and Matarangis' next on the list.

The grey thing is called a plinth. Once all the fibre for your area is laid in the ground you'll be able to place your order - that needs to be completed first.

Now we just need something for Whangamata :) 

 

 

 

 

 


By 2022

 

Just in time for NEXT RWC! Ugh!

 

Spark really screwed over the rural towns when they bought the rights and streamed them.

 

 

A lot of us in urban cities do not have mobile coverage let alone Fibre.

If you're right inside Invercargill city - is fibre really not available? Or are you quite a distance outside the city?

I’m in Hargest. I have been told I am running off one in Windsor. I sure hope it’s not the device. However I’m not the only one who has problems. We have fibre but it’s very unreliable.

pretty sure that will be your devices again, fibre is way more reliable than copper.

Admittedly yes for some. All new equipment and the oldest device on the network is only 7 years old
