This report provides a snapshot of key statistical data for New Zealand’s telecom market. It includes information on:
- Country statistics – GDP data and population;
- Internet and broadband – subscribers, users and penetration rates;
- Mobile – subscribers, annual change and penetration rates;
- Telephone network – fixed-lines and teledensity;
- Telecom investment and revenue data;
- Broadcasting – Pay TV subscribers and penetration rates.
The report also provides information and analysis on the fixed-line and VoIP services markets. Though still small in relative terms, the market for VoIP services is expanding in line with the rollout of the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) network and as broadband services become available to more areas of the country. Small and medium enterprises and government departments are installing VoIP as part of larger ICT solutions aimed at cutting overall operating costs and providing increased flexibility.
The fixed-line voice market (voice calls and local access) continues to lose overall share of the telecom services market, partly caused by the drop in call prices and volumes as the uptake of mobile and other P2P services continues.
