The NGA Gigatown Dunedin Offer Trial Agreement is ready to be signed by any customer wanting to provide Gigabit services in Dunedin. An executable version is available from your Chorus Account manager.
The agreement has been recently updated to include the Gigatown Educational offer, which is available since 4 December 2015. These services will be available to be ordered by the Online Order and Tracking (OO&T) system and the Chorus Portal. The Gigatown Dunedin offer has been extended until 30 June 2019.
How has the Gigatown offer gone?
In Dunedin alone there are more than 12,000 gigabit connections, with fibre running down some 1,500 streets, passing nearly 53,000 households. About 50 percent of Dunedin homes and businesses have already chosen to connect to fibre.
The average household broadband speed in the city is hitting 309Mbps, nearly four times higher than the national average. In addition, there are now more options for people to consume fast broadband when they are out and about in Dunedin, with 14 gigabit-powered Wi-Fi hotspots across the city.
Extending the offer until 30 June 2019
As we are extending our Gigatown Dunedin offer through to 30 June 2019 and Chorus’ gigabit subsidised pricing will be available until then for you to continue to promote fibre broadband in Dunedin.
The three plans that are currently part of the offer are:
- Gigatown Residential
- Gigatown Business
- Gigatown Education
From 1 July 2019 this trial offer will terminate and these plans will no longer be available to order. Given the Gigatown offer was only a trial of subsidised pricing for gigabit services, the plans will not be grandfathered.
- Ends on 30 June 2019
