Around 190 new towns will receive UFB under the second extension to the UFB programme, and the completion of the rollout will also be brought forward by two years.
In total, under the full UFB programme, around 390 cities and towns will receive UFB by the end of 2022.
87 per cent of New Zealanders will then have access to fibre-to-the-premises.
Crown Infrastructure Partners and its deployment partners agreed deployment targets and then partners determined build scheduling. The timing and order of the rollout is based on the availability of contractors, meeting the agreed deployment targets as well as the need to build new network contiguously wherever possible.
It is inevitable that some towns will come before others in such a large scale nationwide infrastructure deployment programme.
