Steps to getting fibre pre-installed at your single-dwelling unit development:

1

Place order

When your development is nearing the final stages of construction, like gibbing and painting, please complete our pre-built fibre order form and email it back to us at pre-built_fibre@chorus.co.nz. We’ll process your order within 10 working days. See our handy checklist for what you need to have completed before we can carry out the pre-built fibre installation work.

Once we’ve processed your order for pre-built fibre, we’ll contact you to set up an appointment for one of our technicians to come and install fibre at each premise. You or your onsite contact need to be present for this appointment.

2

Installation

At the installation appointment, our technician will bring the fibre from the property boundary and connect it to a small box called an ETP, or external termination point, which will be installed on the outside of each premise in your development. The fibre will then be taken from the ETP and connected to another small box called the ONT, or optical network terminal, inside each premise – this is what your new occupants’ modem will plug into.

Important information

Pre-built fibre for retail premises and open plan offices in commercial premises will be handled on a case-by-case basis as pre-built fibre may not be the best option. This is because the layout of how the space will be used is not always known at this stage. We will discuss this with you when we receive your application for your development. If you haven't already, you can register your development here.

Installation

At the installation appointment, our technician will install a small box called an optical network terminal or ONT inside each premise within your development. The ONT connects the fibre, that has been wired outside the premise, to the modem.
