Chorus is unveiling Hyperfibre - its next generation of fibre technology, using a XGS-PON fibre solution, set to dramatically increase capacity and unlocks the ability to deliver exponential speeds on the Chorus fibre network of up to 10 Gbps.

 

Hyperfibre speeds of 2Gbps and 4Gbps are planned initially, with an 8Gbps service in the future. The planned services will be symmetric, with the same speeds for both download and upload, which are expected to save Kiwi consumers and businesses big each year.

 

With these speeds New Zealand would become one of only ten countries in the world to deploy broadband faster than GPON and the first in the Southern Hemisphere.

 

Ed Hyde, Chorus’ Chief Customer Officer says following the release of gigabit services in 2016, Hyperfibre further illustrates the near limitless potential of our fibre network and can enable a new era of high-capacity creativity, innovation and efficiency.

 

“With uploads and downloads happening in a blink of an eye, we can expect time and productivity savings across the board, especially for customers who transfer large amounts of data, such as creative industries.

 

“The exceptionally low latency of Hyperfibre will also offer new ways to collaborate and the potential to revolutionise digital business models. Obvious advocates will be those using high performance software applications that depend on real-time communication and high-resolution images, such as remote medical diagnostics and surgery, instantaneous software prototyping, as well as gaming and interactive entertainment services.”

 

Mariano Segedin, Head of Operations at Augusto, a hybrid creative and production agency that has been trialling Hyperfibre products, says the hyper connectivity has been critical to the workflow and growth of their New York office and client base.

 

“Given the nature of our business, we constantly find ourselves transferring large video files to offices across the globe. Having trialled Hyperfibre services, a 1 TB file (1,000 Gb) that would ordinarily take 12 hours to download/upload, now takes just 18 minutes.”

 

As the majority of the infrastructure is already in place the intention is to release Hyperfibre services on a region-by-region basis from February 2020.

 

In the meantime customers can register their interest and receive updates on the availability of the new Hyperfibre speeds at the Chorus website.

Impressive! 
Some extra information here around what cost will look like and the ordering process - https://company.chorus.co.nz/chorus-hyperfibre-set-redefine-fast-broadband-new-zealand. Also includes a timeline of the release by telco cabinet and exchange areas.

For me - 
March 2020 – Courtenay Place, Johnsonville, Miramar, Wellington

How far does Johnsonville span? :P

 

Registration link for interest and updates https://www.chorus.co.nz/hyperfibre is currently returning a 404!
I'm sure that will be fixed soon.

Can you opt-out of using the ONT as your RGW?

The howling sounds you can hear are our cuzzies across the ditch.....

 

 

 

"“NBNCo says future FTTC upgrades will be able to achieve speeds of up to 1Gbps, or ten-times faster than the current maximum NBN speed”, "

to be honest though, would not surprise me if providers just roll with the RGW.

 

 

 

The hardware to route at the speeds required is simply likely more cost effective that way.

 

can only really assume until pricing is unveiled though.

 

 

 

 

 

Personally, the plans are right in the speed ranges i was expecting; props to chorus for not letting a marketing approach of lets just do 10G!

Are there any consumer type routers on the market that can support this?

Nope.

 

 

 

Even in the IT world it's not cheap, Heavily depends on stack your connecting to etc.

 

if providers drop to IPoE rather than PPPoE it becomes reasonably possible with a cheap mikrotik or x86 router build.

It's a 1G/2.5G/5G/10Gbps port :)

 

and there are still 4x1ge ports too.

 

That should provide some flexibility for connecting devices/routers/switches.
