Before Chorus can stop providing copper services, consumers must have access to an equivalent fibre service; that is, they must be able to buy the same services over fibre that they currently have over copper.

We have previously indicated that the development of the Copper withdrawal code and the Commission 111 contact code would be completed by mid-2020. However, due to COVID-19, our aim is now to have these codes in place by September 2020. We note that the statutory deadline for developing these codes is the implementation date (ie, 1 January 2022).
