It would be an understatement to say that broadband in NZ is a topical issue. Most of what I read isn’t objective or well thought out. I’ve said before the stated goal of the government to “get us into the top half of the OECD” is a nonsense without thinking about and supporting commercial enterprise to use these digital links and create wealth from it.
So I was really interested in this report from the ISCR. It’s really worth a read. It describes and compares the demographics and telecommunications infrastructure of the two nations and seeks to explain why Finland are 6th and NZ is 19th on the OECD lists.
