Voyager's NZ UFB rollout "on schedule and accelerating"

“We hope to have full UFB region coverage for all New Zealanders on our network by mid 2015.”

Voyager Internet, recently recognised as New Zealand’s fastest growing business in the Deloitte Fast 50, has extended its UFB service rollout across the country, with founder and CEO Seeby Woodhouse eyeing further expansion by 2015.

Speaking to Computerworld NZ, Woodhouse says the Auckland-based telco now offers UFB services, both Retail and Wholesale, in Tauranga, Napier, Rotorua and Dunedin, complementing the company’s existing centres in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.

Following the announcement, Woodhouse says Whangarei and Queenstown will follow shortly, along with the rest of the 33 UFB regions which the telco hopes to make live by approximately mid-2015.

“Voyager’s UFB Rollout is on schedule and accelerating,” says Woodhouse, speaking following the company’s number one Deloitte Fast 50 this week.

“We hope to have full UFB region coverage for all New Zealanders on our network by mid 2015.”

Although Voyager only currently covers 8 out of 26 Major UFB regions today, the telco has covered the largest population centres first.

“So in fact of all of the people in New Zealand who will be able to get UFB at their home or business, over 85% can get Voyager UFB through us today - directly, or via one of our wholesale ISP partners,” he adds.

“The smaller UFB regions that we will be connecting until the middle of next year are the smaller regions and account for only around 15% of the UFB capable population.”

As a result Woodhouse believes the announcement means that Kiwis in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Rotorua, Napier, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin can now access Voyager UFB, or UFB from one of the 38 Small ISP’s who they supply wholesale services to, representing around 85% of the UFB-capable population.

Voyager, which has experienced growth of 1391% this year, plans to have Whangarei and Queenstown connected as Voyager UFB capable areas in the next 2-3 months, and the remaining 16 small UFB regions by approximately mid 2015.

“Voyager aims to be the premier wholesale choice for small ISP’s who want to offer UFB nationally, but can’t afford to build a national network,” Woodhouse adds, “and the premium choice for discerning SME and business retail customers.”

Auckland-based Voyager Internet, a business-focused full service telecommunications company, has taken the number one ranking on this year’s Deloitte Fast 50 with a phenomenal 1391% growth.
