Telecom Corporation of New Zealand is New Zealand’s largest telecommunications services company and the incumbent operator. The company provides a full range of internet, broadband data, voice, mobile, fixed-line calling and wholesale services for customers across New Zealand.

Since its operational separation in 2008, Chorus, (now a separate public-listed company on the NZX and covered in a separate report at:, the business unit responsible for operating the Telecom NZ network, has made significant progress towards improving the company’s services to the benefit of both end-users, Telecom and other industry businesses.

Previously the company passed through a transformational period in response to changing industry regulations and the announcement in 2009 of public funding for a national fibre-fed network (UFB). After the company submitted several variations to allow operational separation in relation to the UFB the company demerged in late 2011. From August 2012 the company is now being driven by a new CEO.

The progress in the UFB rollout will now see Telecom able to move forward in its strategies for growth for several years through to at least 2015 as the UFB rollout ramps up.
