Intact Programme


With the number of Intact connections now exceeding installs, we want to ensure customers are having a seamless experience. Our vision is about ensuring customers who get connected at a location where fibre is already intact*, have a frictionless experience, because Chorus and their retail service providers have a truly customer focused approach – enabled by collaboration, robust processes, data and technology. 

Value proposition for retail service providers

For you, this programme is about:

And of course, improving your customer satisfaction scores. 


As a result of earlier engagement with you, we have developed some guiding design principles to inform Chorus’ approach for the future-state experience. They are intended to shape a new approach to the Intact end-to-end experience that puts empathy and the voice of the consumer at the heart of everything we do.



Current focus

Our team is currently focusing on three areas: 

1. Intact journey comms & awareness

  • Deliver improved intact content on Chorus website, which is aligned with our end-customer’s key communications for their intact journey
  • End-customer and RSP benefits:
    • Improve CX by aligning comms and expectation setting
    • Reduction in missing ONT power cable delays
    • Reduction in cancellations and rework.

2. Redesign Abandonments

  • Redesign the process to connect new end-customers to an active ONT when moving to an address the already has an active connection
  • End-customer and RSP benefits:
    • Improve CX by reducing delays and cancellations, reducing effort to connect, and meeting commitments
    • Reduction in cancellations, delays and rework.

3. Enhance experience based on ONT Status

  • Design tailored experiences based on the status of the ONT to reduce effort and connect right first time
  • End-customer and RSP benefits:
    • Improve CX by meeting commitments, reducing delays, expectation setting, and reducing effort
    • Reduction in missing ONT power cable delays.

*An Intact is an order for a fibre service where fibre has already been installed in the premises. This includes moving to a house where fibre was installed previously, changing the fibre set up in a house, changing RSP, making a change to an existing plan or disconnecting a fibre service.
