Ultrafast Fibre proud to have completed New Plymouth fibre network

Ultrafast Fibre Limited has welcomed today’s announcement from Communications Minister, Amy Adams, that the Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) fibre network in New Plymouth has been completed.

Having begun work in New Plymouth just under four years ago, Ultrafast Fibre has deployed approximately 350km of fibre-optic network across the City.

“We are very proud to have completed building the fibre network here in New Plymouth,” says Ultrafast Fibre CEO, William Hamilton.

“With around 26,000 end users now able to connect and demand for UFB services growing, we look forward to seeing the truly innovative things that New Plymouth does with access to the new technology.”

Ultrafast Fibre can now add New Plymouth to its list of completed network builds, which includes Te Awamutu, Cambridge, Tokoroa, Whanganui and Hāwera.

The Local Fibre Company is currently holding a two-day ‘Beyond Broadband’ Expo at TSB Showplace to celebrate the launch of the completed network.

“The ‘Beyond Broadband’ Expo allows locals to experience first-hand how amazing UFB is to use, and how they can get connected through their retail service provider,” says Mr Hamilton.

Mayor Andrew Judd says he is delighted the UFB build is complete and looks forward to the opportunities the technology will provide for New Plymouth.

“Our Council wants to encourage all the community to explore how they can make the most of our City’s access to Ultra-Fast Broadband,” says the Mayor.

“Having UFB will allow us to share more easily with the rest of the world the great things that we’re doing and achieving.”
