New Zealand regulator selects first areas where Chorus can end copper services

Friday 20 December 2019 | 10:49 CET | News
New Zealand's Commerce Commission has published an interactive map showing its initial assessment of locations where Chorus will eventually be able to stop providing copper services, such as landlines and ADSL or VDSL broadband, because fibre is available. The earliest Chorus can stop supplying these services is from mid-2020 and only in the areas where fibre is available to be installed in homes and once certain consumer protections are in place, the Commission said.
