Fibre Subdivisions

We have been installing fibre in subdivisions around the country for more than five years. During 2013 we are migrating these subdivision to the same technology as our new UFB network.

For the last five years we have been working with WorldxChange to deliver services to homes in these subdivisions. With the changes we have made you are now able to order services from any telecommunications service provider that has launched their UFB-based services in your region.

New stages of existing subdivisions and all new fibre subdivisions will be built with the new UFB technology and no migration will be required.

If you are building a new home make sure you use Cat5 cabling or better to ensure you can optimise broadband speeds. We have developed information for homeowners and installers. Find out more about wiring for fibre.
