High-speed fibre network installation begun in Oamaru

One of the Government's Ultra-Fast Broadband partners has started building a high-speed fibre network in Oamaru.

More than 5,700 schools, businesses, health facilities and households will be covered by the network when the project is finished.

The UFB initiative should reach schools, hospitals and 90% of businesses by 2016, and be complete throughout New Zealand by 2019.
