New Zealand - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

This report provides a snapshot of key statistical data for New Zealand’s telecom market. It covers the fixed-line market and developments in the rollout of the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) network. 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.

Vodafone NZ merges with Sky; ComCom increases price for UCLL and UBA access; Telecom changes name to Spark New Zealand; ComCom sets the Telecommunications Development Levy for 2014/15; AARNet signs partnership with REANNZ and Southern Cross Cable Networks to provide New Zealand researchers with access to international connectivity; fixed-broadband developments, ISPs, BSPs, Auckland WiFi trial; ComCom market data updates, NZ-Pacific region cable developments, Southern Cross upgrades; smart metering; recent market developments.
