Ultra fast broadband for Auckland businesses



Business people, innovators and entrepreneurs of New Zealand will be able to compete with anyone, anywhere in the world soon when the Government’s Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) initiative is introduced.

Under the UFB initiative, Chorus will roll out fibre across Auckland and 23 other centres over the next eight and a half years.The cities to see the first fibre will include Whenuapai, Long Bay, Swanson, Papakura and Drury. Deployment will cover a population of more than 1.4 millions as well as 24,200 business premises, more than 400 schools and more than 2,500 medical and other healthcare services.  17,500 Auckland premises will be covered in the first year.

Essential for continued growth in New Zealand, the barriers of distance and time will be almost completely removed by the UFB and business will be given opportunities to work in new ways through technologies like high-definition video conferencing.

Broadband customers will also be able to enjoy a vastly improved service for as much as they currently pay, or even less.
