New fibre prices

October 24th, 2013 at 3:00 pm by David Farrar

Chorus has announced new products and/or prices. The details are:

  • Entry level going from 30 Mb/s down and 10 Mb/s up to 50/20 – price remains $37.50/month
  • Mid level of 100/50 dropping in price from $55/mth to $45/mth
  • Business package of 100/100 going to 200/200 – price remains $175/moth
  • A new top end package residential package of 200/200 for $65/mth
  • A 100/100 package for $50/month

This is a great move by , and very welcome.  I’d probably go for 100/50.

    They don’t mention any data caps, any idea what they might be, or is it unlimited with a fair use rider ?

    Ed,

    Chorus is a wholesaler. They sell these products to retailers (Telecom, Vodafone, CallPlus etc) who then wrap things like calling rates, data caps etc around them to then sell as a retail product.

    These are also only the rates to get your data to the ISP, the ISP then needs to buy international data on Southern Cross (mostly) and it’s your share of that which they manage with data caps.

    But with the disjointed mess that is UFB only some parts of the country will get this.

    Incidentally, in Tauranga it is still impossible to get fibre through telecom/vodafone or snap .

    You can get it through orcon, but, the quality of service is comparatively poor from speed tests I have seen.

    The fibre is being rolled out faster than the admin.

    @DPF

    You appear to have misunderstood the press release.

    These are simply the wholesale prices for the fibre. The prices don’t include the ISP costs for bandwidth, provisioning, and support. And they don’t include the ISPs retail margins.

    The retailers will put on data caps if they see fit
