The New Zealand Government?s Ultrafast Broadband (UFB) initiative is now more than halfway completed. Pleasingly, deployment of Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) has tracked ahead of schedule over the last two years. As at September 2015, deployment was 56% complete, with over 800,000 households and businesses able to connect, equating to around 44% of the NZ population able to connect to an optic fibre broadband service.
