Part no: - Description:

 

ENZ-RIBDI1/SL - Ribbonet DI duct, 5mm, 1-way, Per m Short Length service - Qty: 4
60056817 - Cable 24F LT Blue Nylon sheath G657-A2, UPTO any length - Qty: 17
EL6361-000 - MJC-FOSC-KIT1-NZ01 - Qty: 1
1155162-9 - OFDC-B8G-LX24-08-NN-N-KIT-NZ1 - Qty: 1
1155163-1 - OFDC-B8G-TENIO-TRAY-KIT-NZ01 - Qty: 1
1155154-5 - OFDC-MOBRA-A4/B8/B8G-FAT-NZ01 - Qty: 1

 

 

Google says: 

 

1. Fibre ducting (what they blow the raw fibre through)

 

2. The raw fibre

 

3. The inline joint that they will use to tap off the existing fibre.

 

4-6 appear to be fibre splicing enclosures/trays. I'm not knoledgeable enough to be able to tell if they are intended to be usesd together (e.g. all on the pole) or seperage (e.g. one for the pole, an ETP and the ONT tray) but no doubt someone far more knolwedgeable will come along shortly.

 

I can't see those parts costing that much, so I suspect most of the cost will be in the labour. Given that an 'in scope' UFB install can cost several thousand and as others have said NGA costs can be well into 6 figures, 13k doesn't seem to unreasonable. You could always ask if you can do some of the labour (e.g. trenching) to reduce the cost.

Surely a 4m trench doesn’t cost that much?!

Cost will also depend on what type of fibre they splice into and also whether or not that bunch of fibre currently terminates into UFB at the exchange.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

It doesn’t terminate into a UFB cabinet, we’re very rural.
Just a cabinet at an intersection on our road.
Are you saying there’s more to it than what’s in the quote?

All UFB is passive between the customers property and the exchange - there is no active equipment
