New Zealand consults on safeguards for consumers moving from copper to fibre broadband

Monday 26 November 2018 | 12:42 CET | News
New Zealand's Commerce Commission is seeking feedback on the consumer protections and proposed process that will regulate when Chorus can stop providing copper-based voice and broadband services in areas where fibre broadband is available. For example, the code will require that before the copper service can be withdrawn an equivalent fibre service is readily available at no additional cost to the consumer. Chorus will also have to provide information about available fibre services and give adequate notice of the withdrawal.
