New Zealand - Ultra-Fast Broadband Network - Overview and Analysis
Paul Budde Communication Pty Ltd, January 2013, Pages: 15
While the New Zealand Ultra-Fast Broadband and the Regional Broadband Initiatives are now both in the process of being developed and deployed across the countryside, it is both of these developments that will have a major impact on the way the many applications that need to communicate and drive the economic future of the country. Both these infrastructure deployments will certainly not offer an immediate solution as it will take at least the next decade to fully expand the networks and associated developments.
Simultaneous rollouts of the UFB fibre across a number of regions by several LFCs commenced during 2011 with more network builds to commence during 2012. Schools have been one of the first to get connected to the high-speed network with school, medical and health centres to be the priority targeted with all to be connected by 2016.
The Rural Broadband Initiative is being developed by the joint venture of Chorus and Vodafone and will see Chorus working on the rural network by upgrading fibre to roadside cabinets and infrastructure equipment while Vodafone will provide a wireless broadband service to many rural communities using the backbone fibre network.
In this report we provide an overview of the networks and the deliverables with BuddeComm analysis and we also provide an overview of the companies involved in the rollouts.
