New Zealand’s mobile market continues to undergo significant developments. There have been considerable gains made in LTE services, with effective competition between Spark, Vodafone NZ and the country’s third mobile operator 2degrees. Although LTE geographic coverage remains relatively poor, data collected in February 2016 by OpenSignal found that New Zealand retains the second highest overall LTE data speed, behind Singapore.

Mobile market penetration, at around 123% by early 2016, is growing steadily as customers make greater use of cheaper bundled offerings and mobile data services. Growth is also being stimulated by wider coverage provided under the RBI.

This report provides market analyses as well as operating and revenue statistics and forecasts for the New Zealand mobile market.
