What do I need to do?
The build methods used for category 3 can have a greater impact on your property so we need to get consent from all neighbours before getting started. Fill in the consent form included with your notification pack and send it back to us. Once all consents have been gained, we'll be in touch to let you know when we plan to start work.CONSENT FORM
Category 3 build methods for MDUs
Whether your building consists of two dwellings or twenty, there’s some work we need to do in shared areas of the property so you and your neighbours can connect to fibre. You will have received a notification pack from us outlining the work we’ll do, including build methods, to bring fibre from the street to your building. Find out more about the category 3 build methods.VIEW EXAMPLES
The installation process for MDUs’ and update below:
When the work in shared areas of your building is complete, we can connect you. For this part, our standard fibre installation process is followed.
Agree your install plan
We’ll get in touch to arrange for a Chorus technician to meet with you at your place to talk through the next steps and agree on a plan for the rest of your fibre installation.
Build your fibre
Fibre will be taken from the outside of your unit or apartment and connected to a small box called the optical network terminal or ONT inside your place.
We then connect your modem to the ONT and test the connection before we leave to make sure everything is working as it should.

If the work proposed at your place has been classed as a category 1 build, or you disagree with our decision regarding a category 2 build objection, in some instances you are able to take the matter further via a third party disputes resolution process. More information can be found here.
