This article explains the consent process for the installation of Ultra Fast Fibre Broadband.
Type of consent required
Everyone who lives down the right of way or shares the driveway will be required to provide consent for the Fibre installation.
If you're in an apartment or flat, the owner of the building has to provide consent. Body corporates can give consent on behalf of the tenants. Residents in multi-storey premises will require the owner of the building to provide consent.
As of 11th March 2021 as part of the Residential Tenancies Amendment Act 2020. Tenants can request to install fibre broadband, and landlords must agree if it can be installed at no cost to them unless specific exemptions apply. You can find the full amendment act here.
Residents in Housing New Zealand premises will require approval from Housing New Zealand to proceed with their Fibre installation. Your local Fibre installation company will provide necessary consent forms to Housing New Zealand directly.
