|New Zealand Broadband Pledge|
The New Zealand government has pledged that its country and citizens will rank amongst the world’s broadband aristocracy by the end of 2010.
Specifically, it is aiming for a place in the top half of the OECD’s broadband league tables for coverage, bandwidth, and uptake.
The government has further promised that by 2012, 80% of broadband users will enjoy speeds of 20Mbps or higher, with 90% accessing at least 10 Mbps. Fibre to the Home (FTTH) will play a major role in delivering that capacity: by the same date, the government has promised a minimum of 15 open access fibre networks in towns and cities.
