Copper network

The copper shape files include coverage areas for:

  • VDSL (based on 15db line attenuation) – only provided for VDSL capable cabinets 
  • 60db line attenuation (equates to >10mbps broadband in the coverage maps) – only provided for cabinets in the FTTN zone
  • 70db line attenuation (equates to >5mbps broadband in the coverage maps) – only provided for Zone 4 cabinets
  • 100db line attenuation (equates to >1mbps broadband in the coverage maps) – only provided for Zone 4 cabinets

A CSV file is also provided that indicates which cabinets are part of the RBI program and the rollout year that they expected to be implemented/upgraded. A premises falling outside of a coverage area does not indicate no copper service, it simply indicates that it is beyond a 100db line attenuation. This is indicative information only and a formal prequalification check using either OO&T or Chorus Portal is required to confirm service
