This sounds exciting if it happens. I had a friend who was thinking of moving to a small town, was about to purchase a nice house with sea views, but decided against it because it wasn't on the UFB map.  I think the availability or otherwise of UFB will be a deal breaker in the next few years.  The author of the article, Pullar-Strecker, says the roll-out is progressing "satisfactorily".  This is high-praise coming from this one on UFB.  I think it's going better than "satisfactorily" but an interesting article none the less.

Sounds nice, but not enough to vote nats. Always amusing when they accuse the left of a lolly scramble, and then say this :)

Bummer, still no Putaruru :(




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?
