New Zealand - Telecommunications - Key Statistics and Telecom Market Overview


This report provides a snapshot of key statistical data for New Zealand’s telecom market. It includes information on:

  • Country statistics – GDP information and population;
  • Internet and Broadband – subscribers, users and penetration rate;
  • Mobile – subscribers, annual change and penetration rate;
  • Telephone network – fixed-lines and teledensity;
  • Telecom investment and revenue data;
  • Broadcasting – Pay TV subscribers and penetration rate.

The report also provides information on the fixed-line and VoIP services market. Though still small in relative terms, the VoIP services market is expanding in line with the rollout of the Ultra-Fast Broadband 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.

Telecom changes name to Spark New Zealand; ComCom sets the Telecommunications Development Levy for 2013; AARNet signs partnership with REANNZ and Southern Cross Cable Networks to provide New Zealand researchers with access to international connectivity; fixed-broadband developments, GDP, inflation, ISPs, BSPs, Auckland WiFi trial; mobile penetration, Pay TV, ComCom market data for 2013, NZ-Australia cable updates, Southern Cross upgrades; smart metering developments; market developments to mid-2014.
