Ultrafast Broadband

15 May 2012

Albany first suburb in Auckland to go live.

One Fibre has partnered with Chorus to begin the rollout of the government funded Ultra-Fast Broadband network into Albany.

One Fibre Business Development Manager, Patrick Kershaw, says that thanks largely to the work of the local business groups inside the council, Albany is the first suburb in Auckland to be made 'live'.

"It is a fantastic opportunity for businesses within the district to take advantage of some early offers from Chorus as they strive toward hitting their saturation targets with the Government.

Patrick says there are numerous advantages for businesses who join a national fibre network that runs at a minimum of 4-20 times the speed – and as high as 100+ times the speed – with
unlimited national and international data caps, and incredibly low latency and jitter (which account for the reliability of the service).

"Consider that the price for fibre is only marginally more than what many are paying already on the dated copper ADSL network. Technologies like VOIP – which save on average 30 per cent off business telecommunications costs – then become a reality. The value proposition becomes clear."

Patrick says One Fibre have started a resale partnership model inside Albany and the first to come on-board were ZeroDown.

"We are currently in final negotiations with seven other businesses we are likely to accept into this resale channel as well. It is an exciting way for us to push affordable fibre out to the community via these partnerships, and something we have seen work well in other areas around New Zealand which are already ' live'.

"We look forward to working more closely together with NHBA to promote this initiative into the community."
