This is not just any fibre, it’s Hyperfibre – the fastest Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) fibre. Satisfy your organisation’s need for speed with Hyperfibre.
What is Hyperfibre?
Chorus was the first to coin the word “Hyperfibre” in order to promote their next generation of fibre services. The technical name for the technology behind Hyperfibre is “XGS-PON”. The “X” in XGS represents the number 10, whereas the “G” stands for Gigabit, and the letter “S” stands for symmetrical. XGS-PON is a 10 Gigabit Symmetrical Passive Optical Network. XGP-SON technology enables you to reach an internet speed of up to 10Gbps for download and upload regardless of the distance.
The initial Hyperfibre service will support best effort symmetric speeds up to 8Gbps, with 2Gbps and 4Gbps option launched initially.

Who is Hyperfibre for?
Hyperfibre is ideal for companies that require huge amount of bandwidth to shift large quantities of data, fast.
Companies will be able to use these super-fast connections to utilise full and hybrid cloud computing setups more efficiently. Backup and replication of Gigabytes through to Terabytes of data to the Cloud, or between offices, will be possible faster than ever before, which is great news for business continuity buffs.
Hyperfibre is ideal for businesses that:
- Need robust, symmetric bandwidth
- Support remote branches over MPLS and VPN
- Have a large quantity of users running HD voice and video applications (4K/8K) and pretty much all other cloud apps simultaneously
- Require rapid prototyping and deployment at scale
- Depend on offsite or Cloud server/application hosting and backup
- Upload and share huge files
In order to make the most of a Hyperfibre connection, a ONT (Optical Network Terminal) with a 10G port and a ton of throughput is required. An ONT is a device that terminates the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) connection at your premises and presents an Ethernet port for you to connect a router to.
Chorus has decided to run with the Nokia XS-250WX-A ONT for Hyperfibre services, and this can act as a basic router as well. However, until better tooling is released by Chorus to allow for us to remotely manage these devices, Lightwire will treat the ONT as a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scenario. We will provide access for customers to configure the ONT and leave configuration and management in their hands.
