Some tweaking for Chorus

Amy Adams announced:

Information and Communications Technology Minister Amy Adams has welcomed the agreement by Crown Fibre Holdings and Chorus on the first tranche of amendments to the companies’ Ultra-Fast Broadband contract.

Chorus has details of the changes:

  • More flexibility over deployment timing, so long as still finished by agreed completion date
  • Can use Cat 5e cabling within apartment buildings rather than fibre to each apartment
  • A charge for Greenfields reticulation to developers

The changes look relatively minor, and a pragmatic response to the funding shortfall Chorus has.
