Small Business Fibre - Launching 1 July 2019

The reliability and assurance of a big business plan – for small businesses


Off the back of recent product consultation with the industry, we have listened to your needs and in July 2019, we plan to launch a new business fibre product called Small Business Fibre, designed to better meet the needs of your SME customers at a competitive price point.

We know that fast restoration of service is important to New Zealand businesses, regardless of their size. We also know that launching new products into your offerings takes time to implement, so we wanted to give you early notification of our expected timelines for launching.

Small Business Fibre will be a new product that includes features similar to Bitstream 2 – but with a Bitstream 3/3A business restore service level agreement. You’ll find further supporting details below. 

Please note that we are currently seeking Crown Infrastructure Partners (CIP) approval for our proposed product.  As part of the CIP approval process Chorus needs you to indicate your support for Small Business Fibre at the product forum.  


“Better on Business”: our incentive offer helping you to make Small Business Fibre a success    


“Better on Business” is our proposed offer to support the launch of Small Business Fibre. We plan to offer this new incentive from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.

We’ve developed this new offer to provide you with the support you need to promote Small Business Fibre to new customers or provide upgrades to your existing customer base.

Our “Better on Business” offer will have an additional “Kick-start bonus” contribution for the first 5 months for qualifying new connections. It will help you get your business ready and sell Small Business Fibre right from launch.
