Ultra-Fast Broadband NetworkThe New Zealand Government has given further details on the policies it announced earlier in 2009 regarding its $1.5 billion investment in a national ultra-fast broadband network. The plan has received widespread support. Based on a wholesale-only open network the new infrastructure will set the country up for the new direction that is being taken in telecommunications - from a telephone, and in recent times an Internet network, to essential infrastructure for a range of other economic and social sectors including the development of e-government, e-commerce and digital media.
The government has also committed to partnering with the private sector to accelerate the rollout of close to $3.5 billion for an ultra-fast broadband service to 75% of New Zealanders within the next ten years. The governments commitment to New Zealand will create a booming ICT industry based on the services being able to be developed and delivered using the Ultra-Fast Broadband Network.
In this publication we draw attention to the importance of looking across sectors to create synergy. The New Zealand Government is expected to launch its trans-sector policies for the UFB. We discuss a new approach, which applies across infrastructure projects, and look at the potential synergies between the building of roads, sewerage systems, water and gas pipe networks, as well as telecoms and electricity networks.
