Delivering on the broadband aspiration
2 April 2008
The New Zealand Institute has today released the final presentation in its research project on broadband. This presentation, ‘Delivering on the broadband aspiration: A recommended pathway to fibre for New Zealand’, outlines a proposal to accelerate the deployment of fibre in order to deliver against the Institute's proposed aspiration of fibre to the premises for 75% of the population within a decade.
The presentation proposes the creation of a price regulated investment vehicle, Fibre Co, which would invest in an open access fibre network. Fibre Co would roll out fibre at a rate sufficient to achieve the aspiration, and would be structured to attract a substantial amount of private capital.
Also recently released on the Institute's website is a presentation that summarises the analysis and recommendations made in the Institute's climate change project.
I hope that you find these presentations interesting.
