** Speeds shown are national peak time average speeds based on the Commerce Commission’s Measuring Broadband New Zealand (MBNZ) Spring 2021 report. You may experience higher or lower speeds than these. Factors such as the performance of your modem, location of the server you’re connected to, the performance of your device and your in-home WiFi setup can impact the speeds experienced.

What is Hyperfibre?

Hypefibre is super fast and comes in 2000Mbps and 4000 Mbps speeds. Hyperfibre enables multiple, simultaneous gigabit downloads, lower latency and you can stream your heart out.

The rise in ultra-high definition video, cloud storage, video uploads, advanced gaming, working from home, and connected devices in a single household means Hyperfibre’s speed and capacity are more important now than ever. Fibre has always been the best, most-reliable connection, but wait until you experience the era of Hyperfibre.

How much does the Hyperfibre install cost?

Hyperfibre 2000 and 4000 install cost is $249 on a 12 month contract.

How Does Hyperfibre Work?

With standard broadband speeds, a 1 TB file could take up to 12 hours to download. But if you have Hyperfibre, that same download will take you just 12 minutes.

Not only does Hyperfibre deliver faster speeds, but you’ll have a much better overall experience. The connection is low-latency, which means that it can process high levels of data with minimal delays. And the speed for uploading and downloading items is the same.

Plus, users can access multiple devices on the same network and experience a smooth connection on all of them. This connectivity is especially crucial as more people are working from home and attending school virtually.

What Speed Is Hyperfibre?

Hyperfibre delivers super-fast internet speeds and supports multiple gigabit downloads at once. It allows users unlimited streaming capabilities, low latency, and the most reliable connection available.

Just to give some context on speed, let’s say you’re trying to update a 15 GB game. If you have regular fibre internet with speeds of 100Mbps, it’ll take you about 21 minutes to complete the update. With 4Gbps, that same update would take just 30 seconds.

Do I need a new modem for HyperFibre?

Yes, Chorus will need to install a new optical network terminal (ONT) that can handle the ridiculously fast speeds you will encounter. This ONT will act as your modem and will be supplied on a 12 month contract at an install cost of $249. Landline services are not available with Hyperfibre.

What are the Benefits Of Hyperfibre?

Here are the biggest benefits Hyperfibre can bring to homes and businesses across New Zealand:

  • Faster speeds: The biggest advantage of Hyperfibre is that it’s up to 20 times faster than the average fibre plan.
  • Low latency: Hyperfibre comes with low latency, which means that it can process large amounts of data with minimal delays. This reliability makes it ideal for homes and businesses that need to transfer large amounts of data.
  • Symmetric services: Hyperfibre is symmetric, which means the speeds for uploading and downloading data are the same. Early access: New Zealand is one of only 10 countries in the world to begin offering these ultra-fast internet speeds.
What’s The Difference Between Fibre And HyperFibre?

Fibre internet is a broadband connection that reaches speeds of up to 940Mbps. Fibre internet works by using a fibre-optic cable that sends data at about 70% of the speed of light. And these cables are less susceptible to weather changes, which protects customers from internet outages.

While fibre internet is a considerable upgrade from dial-up or cable internet thanks to its high speeds and reliability, it pales in comparison to Hyperfibre. Standard fibre has upload speeds up to 20 Mbps and download speeds up to 100 Mbps.

In comparison, Hyperfibre has upload and download speeds between 2-8 Gbps. It supports an unlimited number of devices and is extremely reliable.

Is HyperFibre right for me?

Overall, high speeds and a better connection make Hyperfibre a good option for consumers and businesses across New Zealand. It is ideal for anyone who is looking for fast, reliable internet and symmetric bandwidth.

Of course, the average family probably isn’t transferring large quantities of data on a daily basis. But for them, the real benefit of Hyperfibre is the freedom it provides. It allows you to operate multiple devices on the same network while still receiving a smooth internet connection.

And having access to fast and reliable internet is even more important as more people are working from home or accessing educational curriculum online. With Hyperfibre, you’ll receive the same dedicated service whether you’re downloading a video, on a Zoom call, or updating a game.

Hyperfibre is ideal for any business that regularly shares large files or processes large amounts of data. It can help your business operate more efficiently, and the low costs make it affordable for most companies.

The Commerce Commission 111 Contact Code (“111 Code”) was created to ensure that vulnerable customers have reasonable access to an appropriate means of calling 111 emergency services in case of a power failure.
 
Newer home phone services such as voice calling over broadband, which rely on an active working broadband connection, won’t work in the event of a power failure, without an independent power source. The 111 Code requires Telecommunication Service Providers to provide vulnerable customers with an alternative solution to contact 111 in case of an emergency. 
 

If you are receive home phone services from our VDSL, Fibre or HyperFibre products and you or someone that you live with do not have access to a traditional copper phone line and is likely to need to contact 111 services for health, safety or disability reasons and do not have the means to do so during a power failure, please read and fill out the form here.

Alternatively, please reach out to us here and our support team will provide details related to 111 Code.
