Hello

 

Chorus is currently laying fibre cable in our street with the laying virtually completed what are the next steps ?

 

Chorus website is reporting the finish by April but to me it looks like it will be a lot quicker.

 

What are others experience around build time frames ?

 

 

 

Thanks

Best to follow the website on this.

 

We are doing the rollout of Fibre by cabinet area rather than street so although it may look like we are done there may be other streets getting their build.

 

There are also a number of QA checks and setup required oin the background before we are actually ready to start taking orders.

 

I suggest keeping an eye on the address checker because as soon as we are ready to start taking orders for your area we will update the website to reflect this.

It takes maybe a month or two after all the underground infra. is buried.

So how do we go about areas that say that they are covered but are apparently not covered?

 

For Example, the maps state that there should be fiber there but yet there is no fiber in the street?

 

And Yet the houses have been pre-piped with the Low Smoke tube and that's about it?

Still under build, maybe? I think that's what you're asking.

Just put the address into the ChorusNZ address checker and this will let you know when it's ready, check once every 2 or 3 weeks

Not sure i follow sorry. But as Linux said, have a look on the address checker at www.chorus.co.nz. If Chorus is going to be building Fibre into your area it will show up and give you an estimated date for when that will be ready.

So your map shows fiber in the area yet the network still needs to be built? how does that work?

Might help to answer the question if you include a link to the map/area in question. It's pretty hard for anyone to interpret something/a potential error when they can't see it.

@sparkz25 i think this will be far easier if you just flick us a DM with your full address and i can have a look at whats going on.

 

I have an inkling that maybe you are on a ROW/MDU and we need to build down the shared property or that maybe there is not enough network capacity and we need to perform an infill. Those are the usual cases where our terminology would include "building the network".
