Telecom New Zealand is expected to begin selling internet services over the government-backed Ultrafast Broadband (UFB) network from March. However, Telecom chief executive Simon Moutter said that trials with staff had shown that there are still some issues that need to be resolved, BusinessDay writes. At an event organised by the Telecommunications Users Association in Wellington, Moutter said the company wants to defend its 50 percent share of the broadband market. "We need to become a competitive, agile, future-oriented mobile and data centric-service provider. It is quite a big change in culture," Moutter said.
