Spark, Chorus to trial 'street in a week' fibre installation

Tuesday 29 November 2016 | 11:25 CET | News
New Zealand operators Spark and Chorus are piloting a process designed to enable homeowners to install fibre for their broadband service. This involves upgrading all Spark customers in the same street that want Spark fibre broadband, in just one week. Customers can select a specific day within that week for their fibre installation. The trial will take place in Whakatane in the week starting 12 December and will offer up to 400 households with Spark copper broadband the opportunity to be upgraded to fibre in a shortened timeframe.
