My parents recently changed from ADSL to fibre. Their house is old so they paid the wiring and maintenance fee just in case they may need it.

 

 

 

Do they still need it with fibre?

I am not sure any company legitimately charges a maintenance fee for fibre.
I have not seen it mentioned anywhere.

So who has the responsibility for each part of the fibre install?

 

Street to ETP - Chorus, Enable, etc.

The network is owned by the LFC up to the ONT. Everything from there on in is up to householder (or ISP).

I think that the OP  may be referring to the old phone wiring thru the house.  The carrier / ISP responsibility will stop at the ONT and for phone service at the analog output jack on the ONT.  Your home wiring is your problem..

Thankfully fiber kills off this charge and makes it clear where the providers problems stop and yours begin. Having a socket on the LFC's device is much better than the demarc being fixed terminals in a plastic box with non-standard screws outside in the rain where it is hard to connect a device to test it for most people.

I'm not concerned about the home wiring - I don't think they're even using it now. The cordless phone is plugged into the ONT (or router - I forget) and that's it. 

 

 

 

Tried cancelling it on Slingshot's online account maintenance but it comes up with an error message

There was an error updating your insurance.

 

 

Will phone them tomorrow.

Who pays if a fault arises with the fibre that runs on your property? I thought that's what the fee covered?

No, anything up to and including the ONT is the responsibility of the fibre company.

Hello,

 

We still offer Wiring & Maintenance on our Fibre services as we use Hybrid wiring which utilises copper within the property for Homeline. If you do want to remove it though, Just flick through a message with the account info and I'll get that sorted.
