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.

Purchase with Confidence

"As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it."

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
