Would be interesting to know what the letter drop said exactly. Wonder if it's case of the letter simply saying fibre was being laid (which is true to be fair to Chorus) and people interpolating from it to assume it was UFB rather than another form of fibre (which again is fair enough assumption for layman to make given all the recent media attention on UFB and Chorus significant involvement with it). But then again easy enough for someone to bring up the wrong mail merge template by accident. It's disappointing yeah but by all accounts it was a long shot to expect UFB to be rolled out.

The letter was essentially the same one I received at my Auckland address a few years ago. It stated it was being rolled out and that once completed we could get it from our ISP.  Believe me, I read it very carefully and about 5 times when I got it.

 

;-)

 

I don't have it front me now as it is on Waiheke and I'm in Auckland.

Looking at the Chorus maps there isn't anything in there showing Chorus Fibre around your area.

 

Turning on the UFB2 Areas and Planned areas layers there isn't much there either as the only UFB2 Planned area is around where the existing Chorus fibre shown below.

 

I would question if it really is Fibre or if it was a new copper pit rather than something with fibre in it.

And if you have a look at the copper cabinet maps.

 

 

All the "EUBA" green dots down the bottom of the map to the right of the Koi Island test are served from the WH/G, and the above are served from WH/P which is the Pin at the very top of the map.

 

Typically anything that is a new build are put on the map at least 6+ months out as physical builds take forever to do.
