Activity in the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) market is progressing steadily, with a growing number of connections to schools, businesses and consumers. Premises are migrating from copper to fibre, and with it consumers are able to make greater use of IP-delivered content and services provided by faster available speeds.
Activity in the other telecoms markets has also developed following the launch of LTE services by both Vodafone and Telecom. Further consumer take-up of mobile broadband services is anticipated following the auction of digital dividend spectrum in the 700MHz band, as this spectrum is put to use to deliver mobile data.
These two sectors – broadband and mobile – will provide advanced communication services for consumers and businesses in coming years, and deliver opportunities for new industries and players.
The UFB network and Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) are providing high-speed broadband connections across the country, slowly allowing innovative services to develop and provide access to the global marketplace. Continued talk on an alternative undersea pipe across the Tasman comes and goes, but BuddeComm sees this as eventually happening as market demand sees investors re-entering the market.
