Tauranga has the highest uptake of Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) in the country, according to new data.

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/bay-of-plenty-times/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503343&objectid=11330668

No surprises. There is fierce local competition here with Trustpower pushing UFB / power bundles and three other local ISPs including ourselves.

If you want to drill into more data and see some pretty graphs, go here:

Does the 11% figure cover all broadband connections in Tauranga, or just where UFB cables have been installed?

 PN is tops if you only look at the Chorus areas. Tauranga is tops overall.
