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.
