? link worked when I tried it just now?



If you're talking about the Chorus link, it only shows Rural DSL coverage now, not Rural Fibre.

No, Chorus removed the rural fibre from their public map. Service providers still have access to it in a backend system.

The medium subsidy which has the broader eligibility requires road frontage of 50 to 100m per premise, otherwise full price-on-application (POA) applies.

 

 

 

Obviously nothing to do with full flavor, but it is a real pity that there is no public facing means of finding out about (potential) rural fiber coverage. Would be a big draw-card for say somebody looking for a lifestyle block to telecommute from.

 

Does anybody know if those with coverage have been marketed to (or notified that rural fiber is an option they could consider)?

 

 

 

 

That's because it's often a very costly and difficult thing to go through.

 

The likes of Jesse has a small enough ship that hand holding these is quite easy to do.

 

 

 

Spark did offer a process for consumers, but 99% of the time they would pull out soon as any cost was thrown about.

Would be good if it was at least on the Broadback address checker as a possibility.
