Quarterly updates on broadband deployment

Each quarter, we publish a Quarterly Connectivity Update that reports on the progress of the government's broadband and mobile programmes.

Upgrading telecommunication infrastructure

New Zealand is in the midst of a major upgrade of its telecommunication infrastructure:

  • the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) programme and the Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) are delivering vastly improved broadband services to urban and rural New Zealand
  • the Mobile Black Spot Fund (MBSF) is delivering improved mobile coverage on stretches of state highways and in tourism locations.

You can read more about how connectivity is improving in your region in our quarterly updates below.
