    Down a shared driveway? That's the only time they'd ask your neighbors for consent...

    Isn't that changing in June when legislation is being passed to stop this sort of crap?? A friend of line in a block of home units has just been forced to go Spark Wireless because someone in the complex has blocked fiber install.

    Yes.
    No shared drive.

    And I talk to my neighbours.

    Hence my suspicion it really means, you're in a queue.

    Everyone is so self absorbed these days they don't even know who their neighbours are. We always make sure to talk to our neighbours and often share stuff from our garden with them

    Sounds more like your ISP stalling than Chorus. Chorus are generally up-front with where the install is at and will openly tell you if they're not able to schedule a contractor to get out to do the design or install until X date.

    Precisely why we went Spark Wireless, it was that or ADSL, no VDSL and we are in central Invercargill!!!!

    @ gary67

    DOC (and a few corrupt individuals in Karamea who think they will get rich snouting the public trough).
