WHY NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO UPGRADE TO FIBRE BROADBAND

A quick review of the press (Stuff , NZ Herald 1 and 2) covering the increased faults and outages on copper networks last winter, demonstrates how important continuity of online access has become for New Zealanders.

Fibre is available to cities and towns across New Zealand, including Hamilton, Tauranga, Whanganui, New Plymouth, Tokoroa, Hawera, Cambridge, and Te Awamutu.

So as winter is upon us again, now is an excellent time to upgrade to fibre… don’t settle for better when you can get the BEST broadband!


WHY WE NEED FIBRE

Fibre is a replacement broadband access technology for the old copper network. It is a future-proofed technology that allows businesses, schools and home users to do a lot more online… and much faster! Broadband is quickly becoming an essential utility for the home – we are as equally reliant on broadband access as we are for power, water, and phone services – so make sure you have fibre, the best broadband!

Below are some quick stats on how Kiwis spend time online:

With winter here we are likely to spend greater time indoors surfing the net or watching on-demand shows. With copper broadband (ADSL or VDSL), the number of users on the network and what they do can impact on the quality of their broadband experience.

Not with fibre broadband; Ultrafast Fibre’s network has the capacity for increased usage in winter. It is also a very resilient technology that can withstand environmental factors like rain or cold temperatures.

In order to have a seamless and enjoyable experience, you need a fast and reliable connection. You need fibre broadband, the broadband that’s reliable even if the weather isn’t.

Here are the key benefits of fibre:
