INSIGHT: NZ has about 80 ISP’s - for now…

Industry expert Brendan Ritchie, CEO, DTS asks... How do 40 odd ISP’s continue to exist when between them they only hold 3.4% of a small broadband market?

This post follows on from the theme of another recent post I wrote entitled, “Reduced profits and fewer ISP’s – the NZ ISP Market In 2015”.

This second round of comment largely stems from recent media stories which provided an estimate of the state of New Zealand’s Internet Service Provider market as at Q1 2015.

Considering that DTS only provides services to businesses, 22nd out of 80 odd providers in New Zealand is not a bad result.

I would of course hope, and expect, us to be higher up the list when it is next updated though.

The question that has been raised for me was this: How do 40 odd ISP’s continue to exist when between them they only hold 3.4% of a small broadband market?

Let’s assume that each of these ISP’s provides other primary services, and the connectivity services they sell are just a value add.

​What are the top 10 tech trends for New Zealand in 2017?

Digital Transformation (DX) has been a critical topic for business over the last few years and IDC is now predicting a step change as DX reaches macroeconomic levels. By 2020 a DX economy will emerge and it will become the core of what New Zealand industries focus on. From the board level through to the C-Suite, Kiwi organisations must be prepared to think and act digital when the DX economy emerges in 2017.
