Internet connections in Blenheim

My friend just moved to Blenheim and has been waiting 3 weeks now to get their house connected. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

who are they trying to connect with

A couple of companies but they've been told that if they paid $2,500 the provider could open the box on the street and flick a switch. Another house not far from them have been given the same offer. There are several empty homes in the surrounding area too. A new house in Bethlehem Tauranga had to wait 6 weeks!

That doesn't sound right, we are in a brand new house and sure didn't have to pay that much to get ours on

I agree, just a little confused as to what advice I can give them as they have really questioned company concerned but can not question line provider.
Lucky they are not operating a business or they would be finished by now.
