ComCom releases draft report on broadband uptake factors

 |  May 20, 2012

New Zealand’s Commerce Commission has released its draft report on factors likely to affect the uptake of high speed broadband. The Commission found that significant broadband costs would slow uptake for consumers and businesses alike. In addition, the “primary driver” of uptake for consumers is video-on-demand services. Rural consumers were concerned with the more fundamental need of being connected to basic broadband.

Public comment on the draft report is welcome. Submissions will be accepted by June 7, 2012. A final report will be released on June 29.
