Ultrafast Fibre welcomes CallPlus as new ultra-fast broadband retailer

Local fibre company, Ultrafast Fibre Ltd, has welcomed the announcement by telecommunications provider, CallPlus, that it is now selling ultra-fast broadband to businesses in five of its centres: Hamilton, Tauranga, New Plymouth, Wanganui and Hawera.

Ultrafast Fibre CEO, Maxine Elliot, said, “It’s great to see CallPlus launching into several of our major centres and offering a competitive ultra-fast broadband package with unlimited usage.

“As more and more retailers begin selling connections to our network, businesses and residents will benefit as they have more choice and can pick the package that suits their exact needs.”

Ultrafast Fibre is constructing a local fibre network in eight city centres, including Hamilton, Tauranga, New Plymouth, Wanganui, Cambridge, Te Awamutu, Tokoroa and Hawera.

Businesses in Hamilton and Tauranga, where the Ultrafast Fibre network has passed, started connecting to the network in April 2012. The first business connections in Wanganui and New Plymouth occurred this month.
