Wireless

Wireless broadband uses the 4G mobile network to connect to a modem at your house. Because a strong 4G signal is required to get online, wireless isn’t available everywhere. Chorus does not offer wireless broadband.

ADSL

ADSL uses the copper network which provides a dedicated line to your property so there’s bandwidth available just for you and the connection from our network to your property won’t slow down in peak times like nights and weekends.

VDSL

VDSL uses our fibre network to get to a cabinet positioned on the street, and then the copper network from the cabinet to your house. It still provides a dedicated connection to your home so you don’t have to compete with the neighbours for bandwidth when you’re online.

Fibre

At Chorus, we deliver some of the best broadband technology in the world over our fibre network. Fibre uses fibre optic cable to transport huge amounts of data, via pulses of light, at ultra-fast speeds. Fibre performance doesn’t degrade over distance meaning your broadband speed is consistent.
