We don’t want our customers to panic and we can provide guidance and assistance as required.

New Zealand’s oldest phone and internet infrastructure is slowly being retired as Chorus continues to modernise and future-proof the broadband network. After the first landline telephones arrived in New Zealand in 1881, a copper phone line network was built across the country, ultimately reaching 98 percent of us where we live and work.

This copper network which has served Kiwis well for their landline and more recently, internet needs, for over a century is now becoming redundant.
