Help us create the world’s most liveable city

This consultation is open until 29 May 2015

HaveYourSayAuckland Council is planning to submit a Registration of Interest (ROI) to central government on plans to extend rural and ultrafast broadband.

We will be working closely with rural communities to ensure their views are captured in the ROI.

Central government recently announced its intention to extend its two important broadband initiatives with additional funding, and establish a new initiative to expand mobile coverage.

This funding has been set aside for communities nationwide that fall outside already existing and planned UFB coverage and includes:

  • $100M to extend the Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI)
  • between $152M and $210M to extend Ultrafast Broadband (UFB) coverage
  • $50 million to address black spots in the mobile network.
