Best way to do it would be to order a "Additonal ONT" and relocate the second ONT into the second dwelling.

 

This would be a nightmare for any service moves though, most agents who deal with only resi won't be used to dealing with multiple onts and ensuring they touch the port with correct ONT/asid.

 

I've seen many landlords abuse the crap out of this though, some even going as far as to run CAT5 from their ONT to the second dwelling and going "you can only order secondary services" - which heavily limits your providers and available services. 

 

 

is there an alternative without subdividing? we've also been told that the 'additional ONT' would have to be in the same building as the first one.

Hi, I think that chorus policy is most likely to limit two ONTs at the same location rather than one fibre pair drop with an ONT in each, in which case a cat5/6 run between the two buildings and both ONTs in the same location one for each building is probably the easist solution if you are not sub dividing.

Thanks for all your assistance, Cyril7.
The electrician have also emailed a contact at Chorus and cc’ed me.
I’ll post the outcome here.

I know one landlord who just offers internet as part of the rent!  Sounds like a better deal to the tenants to me.
