What is Get Fibre Ready?

Get Fibre Ready is a service we offer to enable you as builders and developers to have your new build houses pre-installed with Fibre Broadband as part of your build process. You can then market your development as fibre ready!

Why preinstall my property with Fibre?

• You are able to market your newly built property as pre-installed with Fibre Broadband!

• We are able to complete the installation in-line with your build schedule and without disruption to the aesthetics of the build.

• An awesome experience for your new occupants – no technician visits needed as fibre is already installed and ready to connect.

• We can remedy in advance any issues that can hold up installations, such as requiring additional traffic management or gaining approval from our third party asset owners so that the Fibre install is complete and ready for the homeowners to move in.

• We will label the equipment in the house with some tips for the new homeowner so they are all ready to go!

At the installation appointment, our technician will install an ETP (external termination point) if one is not already there and also connect it to another small box called the ONT, or optical network terminal, they will make use of your preinstalled duct to do this.

Your occupant will connect the ONT to their modem however if the house is star wired we will attempt to patch the wiring through so the customer can have their modem in the lounge or somewhere nice and central. If we do this we will leave a sticker to help the customer know where to plug the modem in.
