Seems like a great move over there, but we all know how NZ likes to do things slightly different, anyone know if there are plans to open up more here for wifi? with 802.11ac being so wide it sounds like it would really help a lot.

The US has a lot fewer 5GHz channels than the rest of the word at present.

Commercial operators in NZ already have a large portion of the 5ghz band avaliable that they dont have in the USA. 

I wont go into specifics but its near the weather radar bands and there are rules about downtilt of antennas etc to limit the range and stop interference to licensed services.
