Chorus was demerged from the incumbent operator, Telecom in late 2011, and subsequently became the largest provider of fixed-line access and telecommunications infrastructure. The new company and its operations are profiled in this report.
Following the operational separation of Telecom New Zealand into three entities in 2008, Chorus became the business unit responsible for operating the Telecom NZ network and infrastructure. One of its roles was to sell network access to Telecom retail as also to market competitors. Since late 2011, with the operational separation of Telecom completed, Chorus has operated as a separately listed company on the NZSX and the ASX.
A new pricing model for its wholesale services was mandated in late 2012, with reduced prices set by the regulator in November 2013. These will come into force from December 2014.
By mid-2013 Chorus had rolled out 18% of the Ultra-Fast Broadband Network (UFB), which will deliver Fibre-to-the-Premise (FttP) to 75% of New Zealanders by end-2019.
This report provides an overview of Chorus, including analyses, operational and financial information and statistics.
