The principal growth areas in New Zealand’s telecom market remain in mobile broadband and fibre, where most investment among operators has been concentrated. With the UFB rollout having been completed in December 2022, Chorus expected that 95% of the population could be covered with fibre in the short-term.
New Zealand’s mobile market continues to undergo significant developments. There have been considerable gains made in LTE services, with effective competition between Spark, One NZ, and 2degrees. Although 2degrees only has about 22% of the market, it manages mobile infrastructure on a par with the two major competitors. Having merged with Vocus, 2degrees also picked up the fixed broadband subscriber base of MyRepublic. All three MNOs expanded their 5G footprint in 2023, helped by the allocation of spectrum in the 3.5GHz range early in the year.
