Revealed - The top 10 fastest cities for broadband in NZ

​New figures released by Chorus have revealed New Zealand’s top ten cities for fast, fixed line broadband. Overall, the average download speed for households and small businesses on the network in February 2017 was 41MBPS compared with 25MBPS at the same time last year. The results show that Kiwis are downloading, streaming TV and gaming at a huge rate, with the country chewing through 1.5 exabytes (or 1,500,000,000 gigabytes) of data. In addition, the number of households on the Chorus network utilising ultra-fast fibre has nearly doubled in the last 12 months to 21 per cent.
