Increasing the bandwidth of NZ's internet infrastructure is clearly an

important goal. However it also has the potential to deepen the digital

divide between urban/rural, rich/poor, and across ethnic groups. How will

the different political parties address this issue?

While the internet is increasing the contact between people on many

levels, it is clear that some people are spending less time face to face

with their family and friends. What impacts do you see this having on our

society and what approach will your party take to addressing those impacts?

Following on from Frans question...

The Aotearoa People’s Network is about providing free access to broadband internet services in public libraries so that all New Zealanders can benefit from creating, accessing and experiencing digital content.

Will the partys continue to fund this / grow these types of ideas?
