More about Hyperfibre
When will Hyperfibre be available in my area?

Broadband connections using Hyperfibre technology are available nationwide from October 2020 provided the region you're in already has access to the Chorus fibre network.

Use the Chorus broadband checker to see if it's available in your area.


Do you need to dig up my street?

There is no build work required with a Hyperfibre connection as it still uses the Chorus fibre network which is already underground. But a technician will need to visit and change the ONT (optical network terminal) in your premises to a new one capable of handling Hyperfibre speeds. It's easy can be done in one quick visit.


How do I order Hyperfibre?

When Hyperfibre is available in your area you'll be able to contact your preferred broadband provider directly to place your order. They'll send your order to us and we will schedule your upgrade.

This upgrade will take place in two parts:
1. We connect your fibre to our Hyperfibre network at the local exchange.
2. We visit your premises and replace your ONT (that’s the network terminal in your home) with a new one capable of handling Hyperfibre speeds.

Find the right connection for you

Not all broadband is created equal. Before you choose a plan with your broadband provider it’s good to understand the difference between the technologies and connection types available.

Here's what to do next

Ready to take your connection to the next level? Follow these steps.

1. Check what's available

Our broadband checker tool will tell you in seconds if fibre is available now or when it’s coming. Check your address now.

2. Order with your provider

Talk to your preferred provider about the best fibre plan. Here are some tips of what to look out for.

3. Get connected

Chorus will connect your home or business to the fibre network. For most properties this is very straight forward.

Understanding broadband terms
Upload and download speeds

The basic unit of measurement for a piece of computer data is the bit (which can be either 0 or 1). When we talk about the speed at which data moves across the internet we refer to megabits per second (1,000,000 bits per second) and more recently gigabits per second (1,000,000,000 bits per second).

The faster you can download and upload data, the more enjoyable your internet experience will be. That's because the things we like doing on the internet - like streaming movies, TV and music, and playing games - require lots of information to move quickly from the internet to our computer, device or TV.

Broadband connection types (like fibre) are advertised using the best speeds possible for the connection - a maximum potential upload and download speed. There are lots of factors that can affect the performance of your broadband, but the good news is, many of these things are within your control.


Latency

Latency - also known as ping - measures the time (or delay) it takes data to move from one device to another and back again. If the website you are trying to reach is far away or busy, then it will take longer to receive a response and your latency or ping rate with be high.

Wireless internet connections are more likely to be prone to poor latency which can affect the performance of your internet experience, including voice and video streaming services.


What's a good download speed?

Different connections and cable types (copper, fibre, 4G wireless) carry data at different speeds, so a good download speed will depend on which of these connections you have at home. Ideally, you'll want to your speed test result to be close to the advertised top speed for your broadband plan.

If you’re not sure what type of broadband you have, you can use the Chorus Broadband Checker to find out what connection you’re on now and what options might be available at your place. Fibre and Hyperfibre connections are faster and more reliable than all the other types of broadband and come with dedicated capacity for multiple devices to connect at once - ideal for families!

We're ready to take it to the next level

The era of Hyperfibre is here. Delivering you hyperfast speeds so you're ready for a new decade and all the new technology that come with it. Experience speeds up the 40x faster than our most popular plans, it'll change the way we live, watch, play and work.
