About Orcon Fibre
Fibre is being rolled out to more than one million homes around New Zealand. Check your address above to see if you can get it.
Real fast. It’s provided via our Gigabit network. So what will that mean in reality? If you do a wired speed test, you should see 700-900Mbps down, and 500Mbps up. This variance on speed will depend on the speed test server location and capacity. We recommend you use linetest.nz using an Ethernet cable, connecting via a gigabit port on your laptop or PC. If you download an Apple iOS update, it’s not going to come down at those speeds. More than 50% of our network traffic is hosted in New Zealand, so your Netflix, updates, and some downloads will come from our network and be snappy as.
Please note, not all devices are capable of handling these speeds – so please check your device capabilities to see whether your computer can keep up, otherwise, the connection will get bottlenecked at your device.
Fibre 4000 is the latest and greatest in fibre technology, capable of supporting up to 4Gbps symmetrical (both download and upload) speeds with compatible equipment—so it's even faster than our Gigantic plan. The supplied modem comes with 1 x 10GE LAN port and 4 x 1GE LAN ports. To get the most out of Fibre 4000, you'll need Cat 6 Ethernet cabling and a PC or Laptop with a 10GE LAN port. Also bear in mind you will be getting 1Gbps out of each of the 1GE LAN ports (i.e. 4 x streams of 1Gbps). The Wi-Fi on the Modem is AC (802.11ac) and has 4x4 MIMO, and will deliver speeds of up to 1Gbps on Wi-Fi. To be completely upfront, this tech is very new and not many folk will have compatible equipment, so be certain your gear can handle it before jumping in.
Fibre 4000 is only available in the Queenstown area to begin with, rolling out to more areas over the course of 2020. Here's Chorus's current rollout schedule:
Queenstown – Jan 2020
Wanaka, Arrowtown, Cromwell, Wakatipu – Feb 2020
Wellington (Courtney Place, Johnsonville, Miramar) – March 2020
Invercargill (East and South) and Waikiwi – April 2020
Auckland (Avondale, Birkenhead, Mayoral Drive, Ponsonby) – May 2020
Palmerston North – June 2020
Rest of Chorus UFB1 network - September 2020
To get you up and running on Fibre 4000, Chorus will need to install a new optical network terminal (ONT) capable of handling the blistering speed. This ONT will also act as your modem, so you don't need to plug in any additional hardware (unless you want to plug in a mesh Wi-Fi product or similar). A 12-month contract and $199 setup fee applies.
Landline services are not available with Fibre 4000.
