Cymro: Thats my point, there is no difference in strategy at all, just marketing semantics which are obviously working if you think Vectors proposed fibre bid is anything more than laying fibre past premises rather than "into" premises.

I commend your ability to read things into my comments that I didn't say.


Sorry, but it's not much of a stretch from "not much bloody good running PAST things now is it? Someone has to splice that fibre!" and "Well, I know our website is http://www.fibretothedoor.co.nz. Not past the door." to say that you percieve one as different to the other.

I hope Vector do win the Auckland bid and run fibre to my door, it's about 50 metres up a steep concrete gradient from the road so rather they micro-trench it than me!


Didn't you watch the TV ad? They are going to run a line of straws from the street to your house.  The fibre will run in the straws Tongue out

It doesn't matter who wins the Auckland bid, whoever it is will have to connect you.  They may even use an overhead connection depending on how other services are connected to your house.

And once they run that big fat water pipe to your house the straws in your house (internal wiring) is going to limit things unless you're willing to spend money upgrading it.
