Look what the Kiwis are doing.

A little extract from a document by the NZ Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment

To achieve these targets, the Government has allocated over $2 billion to roll out world-leading communications infrastructure through the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) programme, the Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) and the Mobile Black Spot Fund (MBSF).

By the end of 2022, 87 per cent of New Zealanders in over 390 towns and cities will be able to access fibre-to-the-premises UFB broadband with speeds close to 1,000 Mbps. That’s fast enough to stream ultra-high definition movies to 40 different devices simultaneously.

They looked at the UK model and then said "Do it once and do it right."
