Aotearoa's need for speed

Rosalie Nelson, head of insights at Chorus, says we are on the cusp of a paradigm shift in how we use the internet. And the exponential rise in the amount of data we use may finally spell the end to data caps.

Telecom has announced its pricing for its Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) product called Ultra Fibre, launching tomorrow for home, business and schools.

The fibre movement marches slowly on, with a sweetener announced today in the form of free residential connections for distances of up to 200 metres per house from the road until at least the end of 2015.
