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

Copper is our legacy telecommunications network, using existing copper lines to provide phone and broadband services to the country. Chorus provides basic ADSL broadband and part-fibre, part-copper VDSL broadband over the copper network via a dedicated fixed line to your home.
