An update follows below on the situation re the UFB rollout from Waikato District Council. Great to see our area on the map!
Ultra-fast Broadband (UFB) in Tamahere and Matangi
…We’re pleased that our joint efforts served to support the inclusion of the area in the extended UFB rollout as announced by the Government in August this year.
The Government’s fibre provider for the area, Ultrafast Fibre Ltd, has now just published a map to show the extent of the fibre installation planned for Tamahere-Matangi. You can view this map on the Ultrafast Fibre website at www.ultrafastfibre.co.nz/files/UFB2-and-UFB2Plus-Indicative-Coverage-Maps_Nov2017.pdf and scroll down to page 5. (NB Matangi portion of the map is added below this letter ML)
Ultrafast Fibre has also issued a statement saying “it is likely to be a couple of years” before the fibre installations for which it is responsible will be completed. The Government has set a completion date of 2022 for the extended UFB rollout.
If you have any questions about the proposed area or timing for UFB installation in Tamahere-Matangi, please contact Mike Ryan, Manager – Product, Stakeholders & Industry, Ultrafast Fibre Ltd, on 027 702 9672 or Mike.Ryan@ultrafast.co.nz.
