New Zealand - The Telecoms Market Moving Into 2012
Paul Budde Communication Pty Ltd, December 2011, Pages: 8
Activity is taking place across all sectors in the New Zealand telecoms market. Markets now have the chance of opening up further with the digital dividend auction of broadcasting spectrum in 2012/13. This may see more players enter the market, providing advanced services for consumers and businesses.
The ultra-fast broadband (UFB) network and rural broadband initiative (RBI) are providing high-speed broadband connections across the country, allowing innovative services to develop and provide access to the global marketplace.
Competition in the mobile market has delivered benefits for consumers, but will this continue to be the case? Will competition indeed survive? The upcoming spectrum auctions can be used as a game-changer.
The lack of good national content (broadcasting) policies will start to become a problem in relation to potential commercial content monopolies, possibly hampering the commercial success of the UFB.
