Hi Guys,

I've recently signed up for Genius Lite (Black Modem), and have been waiting around a week with no connection after receiving the 'everything's connected' sms notification. We had a Chorus technician out to the house to check the line, he left, said it was all good, and the connection still doesn't seem to work. The latest word, after many calls -  from the call centre, is that someone's scheduled to go check something at the exchange, and we've got a support ticket logged. (11745877)

Supposedly this is going to take another 2-3 days. Is this the last stage in the process? 
If anyone's been through anything similar I'd be keen to know what I should expect.

Your RFS connection date was 22/4, the "Completed" SMS message went out on 23/4, at that point it was identified as a failed install and a job lodged with Chorus - can't see where you were without connection for a week up to that point?

The job for Chorus to rectify is currently awaiting scheduling, as soon as we have a scheduled date from them we'll confirm to you. Apologies that the timing means it will go into the weekend.

Thanks for the quick response. :)

So that RFS connection date and the 'completed' date both sent out sms notifications - but those dates are correct, the 22nd and the 23rd is when we recieved them. 

We've been told by the call center that this work could be completed over the weekend. Is that the last thing to be completed? Are there any other issues that I should expect that would delay this further?

The technician is booked for this afternoon so that should resolve the issue.

Thanks so much for expediting the technician. He's shown us that the signal is good right up to the house. Therefore it must be something to do with the internal wiring. We're going to give our electrician a buzz now - hopefully he can solve the remaining issues.

You probably saved us at least a couple of days of waiting to solve this, really appreciate it.

Make sure he installs a master filter for you!





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?

I didn't expedite it, the tech was already scheduled for this afternoon when I checked.

Master Filter? Better look into that. 

Well, it seemed coincidental that after I put the message on the board that we got a direct call from Orcon telling us the technician was organised. XD
