Keen to get UFB fibre
If you're keen on connecting your business to fibre now or at some point in the future - it's important to consider a few things before you sign up.
Getting fibre to your home or business
If your property is multi tenanted or down a shared right of way, all of the affected property owners and leaseholders will need to give their permission before work can begin. Our Local Fibre Company Chorus will contact them on your behalf, but getting the all of the approvals may take time to complete.
Do you own or lease you premises?
If you lease your property, Chorus will need the owner's permission before they can start any work.
Each UFB request requires an on site visit then a proposal can be developed. Takes approx 6 weeks from receving the request to getting confirmation.
