What annoys me the most about chorus is how long it is actually taking to build the network - how long has it been and they still haven't even broken up the road where I am in Upper Hutt. I really have to ask myself that with the amount of procrastination is getting to the point where I have to ask why we're even bothering with UFB in the end.

Regarding LTE - unless they bring down the cost to the same pricing as fixed line broadband you won't see people replace their fixed line with LTE. Sorry but $50 for 4GB is insane.
