Fiber To The Premises By Country - Oceania - New Zealand

New Zealand

Telecom New Zealand, the major telecommunications company in New Zealand, started a FTTP trial dubbed Next Generation Broadband (NGB) in Flat Bush, a new subdivision in South Auckland in May 2006. The NGB provides up to 30 Mbit/s downstream speeds over a Passive Optical Network (PON) with the only cost to the customers during the trial being a NZ$49.95 activation fee. Vector Communications provides FTTP in wider regions of Auckland CBD and Wellington CBD, and extended network of over 770 km. FTTP services are available from Citylink in Wellington and the pricing makes it suitable for businesses only.

On 22 April 2008, the National party announced a $1.5B plan to roll out FTTH to 75% of the population, if they were elected.

The roll out of "Ultra Fast Broadband" (UFB) began in 2010, with FTTH to all major urban areas, covering 75% of the country's population, by 2019. FTTH will also be rolled out to large users (e.g. hospitals and schools) outside these areas. The remainder will receive FTTN service, with the connection between the cabinet and the customer's premises utilising the existing copper telephone network and ADSL.
