    We have access to fibre here at our shop but Telstra Clear don't seem interested in getting back to me when I have tried contacting them to get pricing etc.

    I did see demo by one of the guys from Northpower, who own the fibre, and it was

    Well, I'm not sure how long it will take to get it on, probably by the time the house is ready to sell...!!Hmmm.
    So the Fibre Optic's must be for ADSL2+?....or are we talking LAN speeds?

    Edit - I can see a business case for a ESX Host at home is the garage for DR......with site replication!!!....LMAO

    I wonder if you gave one of the guys a weeks supply of Beer if he'd hook up your house on the sly

    No but seriously, TelstraClear did Fibre down in Avondale about 12-18 months back, its fibre-to-the-kerb, however they only offer ADSL *off* of that, simply using the fibre as its backbone ... ? I could be wrong thou :-/

    Hmm... it might be something else since cabinets aren't due to be deployed in Tamatea till next year (at the earliest). It might be backhaul lines in preparation for the cabinet rollout next year, or to provide additional data capacity for XT.

    Is there a school or hospital nearby that they could be running fibre to?
