What is better broadband?

Not all broadband is created equal. Connection reliability, connection speed and the amount of data you have available to create, explore and play will influence the quality of your broadband experience.

Chorus currently offers standard residential fibre installations for FREE (usually via existing infrastructure i.e. on a like-for-like basis) in areas that have fibre in the street. The method of installation will be the most cost effective method available. Charges may apply where you choose alternative installation, e.g. underground where aerial is available. Some broadband providers may charge a fee for installation of their equipment, so check when placing your order.

At busy times of day your speed can drop. We categorise a connection as reliable if you are getting more than 90% of your peak speed at the busiest time of the day.
