The Dom Post reports:
Wellington homes and businesses will get ultrafast broadband under a plan submitted to the Government by fibre-optic company CityLink, matching a proposal Vector has unveiled for Auckland.
Vector chief executive Simon Mackenzie said all 450,000 homes and premises in Auckland would be connected by the lines company within seven years with fibre that could provide broadband speeds a hundred times faster than average speeds provided today.
The first third would be connected in the “first couple of years”.
“We are not talking about being constrained at 100 megabits a second down and 50 up. This is capable of gigabits and terabits beyond.”
CityLink managing director Neil de Wit would not disclose details of its proposal, but said it was comprehensive and covered the “whole of the four cities of Wellington”.
