There is now a national broadband map for NZ. You can enter in an address and see what the availability is of fibre, VDSL, ADSL and wireless.
The map has been produced by NZRS (who also run the .nz domain name registry), a company owned by InternetNZ with assistance from MBIE and of course the retail providers.
For example if you put in 175 Melbourne Road, Island Bay, Wellington it tells you:
- Fibre planned for 2016 to 2019
- VDSL available with download speeds of 15 – 60 Mbps and upload of 5 – 18 Mbps
- ADSL available with download speeds of 10 – 22 Mbps and upload of 1 – 2 Mbps
- Wireless not available
A great resource that has already proven massively popular with 60,000 visits within hours of launching.
