Broadband build progressing well in Waiuku and Pukekohe
More homes, schools and businesses in both Waiuku and Pukekohe now have access to world-leading fibre-to-the-premises under the Government’s Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) programme, Communications Minister Amy Adams says.
“By 2019, 75 per cent of New Zealanders will have access to fibre under the first phase of our UFB programme. Waiuku and Pukekohe’s build is on track and we’re seeing good uptake across the region.
