    Default Broadband

    Whats the coverage for Broadband like in NZ?

    I'm guessing the cities are pretty much covered, but what about the more rural parts?
    Who are the big players in Comm's in NZ?

    No more BT.. woohoo!!!

    Dont get excited about losing BT, because you are inheriting Telecom instead.. just as useless as each other!

    Telstraclear is the other major player on the NI, not sure about the SI.

    Wired broadband is around in most bigger cities, or satellite broadband is available in most others.

    Rural areas... that again depends where you go. There are one or two places that have a 'rural initiative' and supply the out-lying places, but apart from that... forget it!

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    Parts of christchurch are wired with cable. I have cable broadband with Telstra clear/saturn which costs $10 per month more than dialup.
