HI all

 

The fibre lay out was getting started about 5/6 weeks ago in my area, they have partially laied the thick green cable down the main access road to my subdivision... Then Covid Lock down level 4 hit. Now there are just big green coils laying beside the road. Does anyone know if at level 3 they will resume the roll out?

I've been waiting nearly 8 years for the roll out so not in a rush, just curious.

Which LFC? They probably have some Covid Level 3 updates on their web site. 

 

They will be allowed to continue to work, following procedures, but ultimately it's up to the LFC and the contractors/employees

Hi, the Vans were branded Chorus ( I am in Taupo). All I have had so far was a generic email saying "there has been a delay in laying fibre outside of your boundary"

I wonder if it is Unison Fibre? As I know they did a lot of over-build in some areas already providing Chorus Fibre in Taupo.
