UFB – What is a standard installation?

The NZ government has set aside a fixed “slush fund” to encourage UFB adoption specifically to the residential market segment.  To gain access to this fund and enjoy a free UFB installation, the following criteria must be satisfied to be classified as a standard installation:

  1. The distance from the boundary of your property to the connection point on your home must be 200m or less, AND
  2. The total distance of wiring inside the home must be 10m or less.

UFB – What is involved in getting it?

The decision to install fibre should be an informed decision, so be conscious that the installation requires a fibre conduit to be run from the curb to your premises.  Wherever possible and feasible, existing feeds/pipes will be used and where this is neither feasible or possible, a new and separate feed will need to be installed.  This may involve trenching, but the need to do so will be identified before taking place, together with any additional costs incurred.

This process may be further complicated if there is shared land requiring authorisation from all parties.

What networks do you use?

We are not tied to any particular networks, instead we seek the best value with reliability for any given product and solution. Our main network partners are Solarix NGN and the aggregation of network access across NZ.
