A more digitally connected New Zealand supports a growing economy and jobs, safer and healthier communities, our children and young people’s educations and our ability to get information more easily.

So we‘ve invested more than $2b to roll out world-class communications infrastructure, like Ultra-Fast (UFB) and Rural Broadband (RBI) to ensure faster, more widespread and more reliable coverage. 

By the end of 2022, our UFB programme will extend to more than 390 towns, providing more than four million New Zealanders with access to faster, more reliable internet – among the most comprehensive coverage in the world.  

National will not let distance stop New Zealanders from succeeding. In an increasingly internationally-connected and high-tech world our commitment to world class communications infrastructure will ensure New Zealanders can continue to get ahead.
