We are ceasing the sale of copper services in additional locations

We are ceasing the sale of copper services in additional locations. 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. Chorus is able to withdraw copper in areas where fibre is available.

 

What’s happening?

Our approach is generally cabinet by cabinet or where withdrawal makes sense - working with impacted Service Providers and their customers to transition to fibre. 

Not every RSP will have customers in these batches, 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 eighth batch. If you have not been contacted at this time your customers aren’t part of this batch. 

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
