For immediate release

InternetNZ (the Internet Society of New Zealand Inc) today launches a public consultation on Internet peering, a subject that relates to the performance and reliability of the Internet. This follows the release of a report commissioned by the Society entitled “Issues regarding Internet peering and interconnection in New Zealand”.
Some key issues identified in the report include conflicting interpretations of the term peering, cost of transit, lack of reliable internet traffic data and statistics and the challenges faced by content providers
InternetNZ invites comments on any issues presented in the report and what further steps should be considered in progressing peering and data interconnection issues in New Zealand.
A consultation document is attached and submissions have been invited either by email in response to that document, or at the website http://peering.internetnz.net.nz, where comments can be attached to the individual questions.
The mission of InternetNZ is to protect and promote the Internet in New Zealand. InternetNZ is a public policy advocate for Internet and telecommunications issues that further an open and uncaptureable Internet.
InternetNZ promotes neutral peering and neutral peering exchanges on the basis that it provides diversity for the Internet network and assists in improving network performance.
