Business continuity update 19 July 2021

Flooding in the South Island continues to impact people living in the Westport and Marlborough communities. 

The flooding has also impacted some Chorus services in both areas. Currently there are 323 residences without broadband as a result of 10 cabinets in Westport, Marlborough and Wellington suffering power loss. These impacts have been notified through our BAU Service Events channels. 

We’re working with power companies in the affected areas to bring the cabinets back online and is engaged with Civil Defence and emergency Telecommunications forums. 

The process of assessing damage is underway along with sourcing of spares and resources for restoration. 

We’ll keep you updated as the restoration continues and if you have any questions, feel free to contact your Chorus account team.
