Telecom Unleashes Ultra Fibre Across Wanganui

24 July 2014

Telecom Unleashes Ultra Fibre Across Wanganui

Telecom, soon to be Spark, announced today that it is launching Ultra Fibre Broadband for residential and business customers, and a comprehensive range of UFB-based Corporate internet, data and voice solutions across Wanganui.

To bring these products to homes, schools and businesses across the Upper North Island, Telecom has partnered with infrastructure provider Ultrafast Fibre who are responsible for around 15% of the Government’s UFB rollout, and have now run fibre past over 100,000 homes and businesses.

Telecom Ultra Fibre customers can choose from simple, competitively-priced, UFB-based products. These start with an entry-level Ultra Fibre Broadband 40GB residential plan from $85 per month, right up to the “Giganaire” plan - offering unlimited broadband from $99 a month when bundled with one of Telecom’s Ultra Mobile plans.

Telecom’s GM Product and Service Delivery, Lindsay Cowley, said he was confident that residents, schools and businesses in the Wanganui area will be very happy with the experience UFB will give them.

“Customers who’ve made the move to fibre love it because it delivers a better quality experience than they receive on a standard copper line. With the best available consistency of speed to your home, this means a better gaming, TV and video streaming, downloading and uploading experience for users – particularly for families with multiple devices.

“For businesses, Ultra Fibre opens the door to greater use of cloud-based applications to improve business productivity. Other business applications such as video conferencing between offices or customers are smoother and can support higher resolution on Ultra Fibre. By adopting fibre, New Zealand business are also future-proofing themselves for technologies we can’t even imagine yet but that will come out over the next 5, 10, 20 years. After all, 15 years ago, how many of us had email access on our phones?” says Cowley.

Cowley says that that the speeds and products Telecom and Gen-i offer on UFB fulfil the needs of most fibre customers today.

Residents and businesses in streets where fibre infrastructure has been installed by UltraFast Fibre can go online for more information to Telecom.co.nz or Gen-i.co.nz, or call us on 123.
