When I have fibre installed, does Chorus also run new lines to my internal phone/ broadband jack points?
Eg: If i have 3 phone jack points - and 2 are able to be used for internet - one is a dedicated phone - I would like the ONT in a network cupboard. does chorus upgrade these jack points when installing fibre in the home OR does the ONT/ modem have to be together?

They would only liven the JP's for the phone, The modem is only attached to the ONT via an eth cable so you could have that anywhere in the house technically but Chorus only install the device, they won't liven any JP's for internet so to speak. Just phones.

So can I clarify - we currently have our modem plugged into a jackpoint in the living room (behind th TV) but I would like the ONT in the network cupboard, not behind the TV. - but chorus wont liven the behind the TV jackpoint to retain it for internet use.
is ths correct?

Yeah. Chorus gets paid by the govt to just install the ONT and modem at point of entry into house. Usually I advise customers if they want the modem somewhere else to either get a long enough cable and internally wire it like I did or pay someone to internally wire it. Like a type of switch almost. Hope this makes sense :/

A CAT6 cable, You can buy them in all different lengths, I had to get a 15m one.
