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.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
