If you are unsure which connection is available at your home you can enter your address in the form at the bottom of our broadband page here or visit the broadband checker on the chorus website.

Copper & Fibre Connection
How do I know if I have a Fibre or copper connection?
Can I change from copper (ADSL / VDSL) to Fibre?
Yes, if Fibre is available at your home you can upgrade from a copper connection.
When signing up for our broadband service, please mention this to our team and we will arrange for a Chorus Fibre install technician to visit your property to upgrade you to Fibre.
The technician may need to make more than one visit to your property.
Please make sure you contact your old broadband provider to cancel your old plan when you switch from an ADSL / VDSL plan to Fibre to avoid being billed twice.
Why should I upgrade to Fibre?
Fibre optic broadband uses fibre optic cables to send data. It provides a much faster internet connection compared to traditional copper (ADSL / VDSL) connections. For more information on upgrading to Fibre, click here.
Do I need to be home when the Chorus Fibre Install Technician visits my home to install Fibre?
Yes, you will need to be home. The technician will need to install the ONT inside your home.

Can I change the date that my Fibre gets installed?

I rent my home. Do I need to get permission from my landlord to install Fibre?
