We are ceasing the sale of copper in additional cabinets

Overview 

With a newly built and future-proofed fibre broadband network soon to be available to 87% percent of Kiwis, New Zealand is now less dependent on the copper network for its broadband and phone needs.

 

What’s happening?

We are adopting a cabinet-by-cabinet approach at a local level - working with impacted Service Providers and their customers to transition to fibre.

Not every RSP will have customers in these trials, as volumes are small, targeted and based on cabinet areas. Chorus has shared lists of impacted customers and cabinet areas with RSPs ahead of this second trial. If you have not been contacted at this time you are not part of the trial. 

We will continue to maintain and invest in the copper network where it’s needed. In areas where fibre isn’t yet built, or isn’t scheduled for build, our copper network will continue to offer consistent, reliable phone and broadband services.

 

The details 

This Stop Sell notice of Copper Services (initial notice here) covers the following 49 cabinets across 26 localities. These cabinets are in addition to the 28 already notified under our initial trial.
