Monday 21 October 2019 | 07:00 CET | News
Nearly 44% of New Zealand consumers currently access the internet primarily through a fibre connection, according to a report from IDC. The report also indicates that New Zealand's adoption rate is more than double the average worldwide rate of 20 percent, and second only to Japan. Despite the worldwide average remaining the same as it was in 2018, New Zealand consumer adoption has seen an 11 percent increase in 2019 from 33 percent in 2018.
