​Tauranga takes broadband to the next level with $75 million UFB rollout

“The UFB rollout in Tauranga started in August 2011, and total investment in the build exceeds $75 million.”

Tauranga is the fifteenth urban area where Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) has been finished, following the completion of the government’s $75 million rollout.

“At the end of January, almost a quarter of the 54,600 homes and businesses in Tauranga which could connect to UFB had done so, and that’s the third highest uptake in New Zealand,” says Communications Minister Amy Adams.

“The UFB rollout in Tauranga started in August 2011, and total investment in the build exceeds $75 million.”

Adams says all thirty-nine schools in Tauranga are now able to connect to UFB, and nearly all of them have taken up a service with the Network for Learning.

“UFB offers the opportunity for New Zealanders to make the most of improving business productivity and connectivity, smarter ways to receive health care, and ensures our youngest New Zealanders are competing on the world stage while studying,” Adams adds.

“Across the country, the rollout of UFB is making steady progress. Access to faster and more reliable broadband is vital in opening up opportunities for those living in Tauranga.”

Adams says the nationwide UFB build is now 60 percent complete, with over 875,000 New Zealanders now able to connect to the network.

Following the completion, list of 15 completed UFB towns now include; Whangarei, Te Awamutu, Oamaru, Cambridge, Tokoroa, Hawera, Ashburton, Blenheim, Whanganui, Taupō, Timaru, Greymouth, Masterton, New Plymouth and Tauranga.
