What's happening...

Chorus has today advised that a technical fault, relating to capacity, with hardware at our Mayoral Drive facility means that we are currently having issues with provisioning new fibre connections and changing fibre plans in parts of Auckland. 

New in Gigabites

  • Global gigabit speed wars Network operators around the world have launched a speed war as they bring to market lightning-fast 10Gbps services in a bid for the title of ‘fastest in the country’.

  • Fibre demand outstrips DSL and SKY New Zealand’s demand for fibre broadband is fast outpacing what was achieved with traditional copper broadband and SKY’s pay TV when you compare early adoption rates.

  • Role of G.Fast in our fibre future broadband is causing a huge buzz in Europe and to a lesser extent across the Tasman due to its ability to deliver “fibre like” speeds of 100Mbps or more over copper.

Chorus has finished work upgrading a number of broadband cabinets in various rural regions, meaning more local residents can now benefit from better broadband services.
