As part of my research I need to know how much of New Zealand has access to fixed line broadband services.

It would be really awesome if anyone could tell me:

*What percentage of NZ residents have access to fixed line broadband
*What percentage of RURAL NZ residents have access to fixed line broadband
*Roughly what percentage of NZ is covered with access to fixed line broadband

And... How many km of fibre is currently installed in NZ by chorus (in total)

tried OECD?

http://www.oecd.org/document/54/0,3343,en_2649_34225_38690102_1_1_1_37441,00.html

having blistering fast local area network is useless, when the real bottleneck's hindered by costs when connections going out is held by a single entity.

Stats NZ have released their 3 yearly ICT survey that covers usage, access and barriers to uptake.  It might have more timely info than the OECD reports.

Chorus are not the only ones that own fibre in NZ, and also lease space on other company's fibre eg Telecom's links to some areas use Telstra fibre.




Qualified in business, certified in fibre, stuck in copper, have to keep going  ^_^
