New Zealand’s Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) fibre network delivers a range of high speed Internet options to consumers, businesses, schools and hospitals. In general these speeds are dramatically improved and offer lower latency when compared with the ADSL internet connections most common in NZ in 2012. In particular UFB upload speeds are typically at between 10-50 times faster than ADSL’s average 1MB/s upload.
The most popular offerings (utilising GPON technology) are currently:
– 30Mb/s download, 10Mb/s upload
– 100Mb/s download, 50Mb/s upload
Businesses and other organisations are able to purchase P2P (Point-to-Point) UFB fibre connections of up to 1Gigabit/s (1000Mb/s).
