Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) is defined as a fibre-to-the-premises broadband service that provides downlink speeds of up to 200 Mbps (megabits per second) and uplink speeds of up to 200 Mbps.
What is Ultra-Fast Broadband
The Ultra-Fast Broadband Initiative is a government programme to expand and develop New Zealand’s broadband services. The government is contributing $1.35 billion to the initiative with significant amounts of private co-investment also being contributed by the government’s Ultra-fast Broadband partners.
Fibre is the next evolution of Internet connectivity. It will give kiwis much faster broadband connections and download speeds than they get today, radically transforming the way organisations and people use technology and communicate.
If your business is accessing an ultra-fast business broadband service, it can lead to productivity improvements, increased revenue and cost savings.
These are just some of the benefits an ultra-fast business broadband service offers New Zealand companies. And with the business sector being one of our priority groups, all businesses in Ultrafast Fibre’s areas will have access to ultra-fast broadband by 2015.
Here are just some examples of how ultra-fast broadband can improve business:
- improved Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity across multiple sites
- cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS) applications
- high-definition video conferencing across multiple sites/companies
- IP telephony to deliver improved integration of voice communications
- improved information sharing, using tools like instant messaging, across multiple sites
