New Zealand has experience steady growth in fixed broadband penetration in recent years. The overall number of broadband subscribers has grown with steady momentum in recent years, with the principal growth areas have been in the mobile broadband and fibre sectors. The number of fibre subscribers will continue to increase substantially over the coming years as the ultra-fast broadband service for urban dwellers sees increased uptake among consumers.

The uptake of mobile broadband will be bolstered by the expansion of mobile technologies based on LTE, and be supported by the Rural Broadband Initiative rollout which will add a large number of mobile cells to new areas. Although growth in the number of mobile broadband subscribers will slow as mobile penetration becomes further saturated, a further stimulant is expected from the impetus of the younger demographic migrating from fixed-line to mobile-only broadband services.

This report provides an outline of the key broadband providers in the New Zealand market as well as overall broadband statistics and estimates of market forecasts.
