Vector Communications working with North Shore City Council proposes to build a 38 km extension to their existing fibre network that will connect directly to schools, libraries and council offices in the North Shore region. Universities, hospitals, businesses and Dom's house will also have access to the network. The network is intended to be a pilot for similar proposals in the Auckland Region.Well, get this. From the existing fibre, which runs up East Coast Road, an extension will go down Forrest Hill Road, turn down Manutara, then run the entire length of Catalina Crescent, briefly head onto Blakeborough Drive, then Grenada Avenue, Becroft Drive, and it'll finally terminate at Wairau Intermediate. That means I'll have awesome fibre running ten steps from my front door. And I probably still won't be able to connect to it.
Although, they do mention businesses will have access. And DoubleMu Limited has its registered office at 1 Catalina: I could totally set up a home datacentre. Otherwise, anyone know anything about splicing fibre?
