Telecommunications Act: Broadband monitoring

5 November 2004-05

Telecommunications Act: Broadband monitoring

The Commerce Commission has completed the first quarter of its monitoring of uptake of residential broadband services provided or supported by Telecom New Zealand Limited.

The Commission commenced its broadband monitoring following Telecom’s announcement earlier this year that it will have no fewer than 250,000 residential broadband connections by the end of 2005, of which more than a third (approximately 83,000) will be resold Jetstream products or wholesaled Bitstream services.

For the period July to September 2004, the Commission announces that Telecom achieved 30 percent of its connection target with a total of 74,449 residential broadband connections. Of this number, 42 were wholesale connections, which equates to 0.05 percent of the wholesale target.

The broadband uptake figures can be broken down by downstream speed as follows: 60,522 connections with downstream speed less than 512Kbps; 82 connections with downstream speed of exactly 512Kbps; and 13,803 connections with downstream speed greater than 512Kbps.

The Commission’s monitoring focuses on residential customers with minimum speeds of 256 Kbps downstream and 128 Kbps upstream. The monitoring will continue until the end of 2005, and the Commission will publish its results quarterly.
