Tauranga’s ultrafast fibre broadband rollout is complete
Communications Minister, Amy Adams, announced last week that the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) network in Tauranga has been completed.
Having begun work in Tauranga in August 2011, Ultrafast Fibre has completed approximately 680 km of underground drilling and 94km of fibre infrastructure across the city.
“We are very proud to have completed building the fibre network here in Tauranga,” says Ultrafast Fibre CEO, William Hamilton.
“With nearly 55,000 end users now able to connect and high demand for UFB services, we look forward to seeing the truly innovative things that Tauranga does with access to the new technology.”
Mayor Stuart Crosby says he is delighted the UFB build is complete and looks forward to the opportunities the technology will provide for Tauranga.
“Our Council wants to encourage the community to make the most of this new network and what it enables,” says the Mayor.
“Access to UFB is a significant step forward for Tauranga in its journey to becoming a world-class city.”
