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

Synopsis

This report assesses the key statistical data and regulatory measures in 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.

Key developments:

Government signs off on a reform package aimed at improving the Telecommunications Act and modernising the telecom sector; UCLL lines fall to 89,00 by end-2016; Crown Fibre Holdings to be rebranded as Crown Infrastructure Partners and invest in greenfield housing infrastructure; Spark, 2degrees and Vodafone make a joint bid for RBI2; Spark planning to replace PSTN network with an IP-based network by 2022; three fibre providers launch wholesale 1Gb/s services; Vodafone NZ’s proposed merger with Sky cancelled; AARNet signs partnership with REANNZ and Southern Cross Cable Networks to provide New Zealand researchers with access to international connectivity; report includes ComCom and Statistics New Zealand data for 2016, recent market developments.
