NZ LFC’s Field Force Teams will be operating during the holiday period, including their faults teams on statutory holidays, with schedules adjusted to meet forecasted demands. This includes normal fault restoration services. Provision Ready for Service (RFS) dates provided over this period will reflect the Field Force schedule availability, including data (HSNS) provisioning requests. Carrier faults escalated during the holiday period will be treated as BAU, as their faults team will be maintaining their service desk during this time.
