Nationwide business data network provider Vector Communications has dramatically expanded its Auckland coverage. 

As of 14 July, the company can now connect more than 10,000 Auckland business addresses to its fibre network, a more than tenfold increase on its previous coverage. 

For Vector Communications GM Greg Davis the step up is big news: “As a New Zealand-owned company we’re big on helping businesses connect and drive the local and national economy. This move extends our reach well beyond the CBD and large commercial hubs into more places where Aucklanders do business.” 

The move means even more businesses can connect via Vector Communications at speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s, making the offering ideal for data-heavy applications and cloud-based services. 

The extended network covers more than 10,000 business addresses in areas including Albany, West Auckland, the North Shore, South Auckland and more and is available immediately via Vector Communications and its resellers.

What is their reasoning to expand the network? Can they compete against UFB? While some larger companies will want diverse delivery networks is there enough demand for it?

I doubt they would be expanding their fibre network if there wasn't a good business case to do so

Dark fibre networks, P2P fibre is stuff UFB cant do.

I think school IT companies use their network, like New Era.

How do we figure out what addresses are serviced and get pricing? Are they reselling through RSP's or direct?

That's not completely true dude. UFB includes a P2P service which has options right up to 10G (Bitstream4/HSNS).

Timetable is by end of 2019




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

And with the Chorus architecture moving towards the ABFATs deeper into the node, offering P2P services over UFB fibre has become a lot easier.

Kinda, as it is still dependant on feeder fibre (exchange to ABFAT) availability.
IMO it's the 'Air Blown' part that helps - easier to provision more fibre in the future if space is available - rather than the lower customer numbers served from the ABFAT in relation to cabinet based FATs.

Nope, at least as I know. When we got fibre connected last year I think they upgraded all the switches (pree sure)
