World Internet Project New Zealand: The Roll-out of Ultra-fast Broadband (UFB) in New Zealand, 2015: A Report to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)
The New Zealand Government’s Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) initiative aims to enable 75 percent of New Zealanders to access the internet using UFB by the end of 2019 and, in its second stage, to enable at least 80 percent of New Zealanders to do so by 2022. The 2015 survey of the World Internet Project New Zealand, with the support of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, extended its range of questioning to elicit detailed information on UFB in New Zealand. New questions were developed and added to the survey concerning the UFB situation. This report presents an analysis of the usage, attitudes and demographics of accessing the internet through UFB of the resulting sample of 1377 New Zealanders. It should be read in conjunction with the main 2015 WIPNZ report.
