In an article by Ken Lewis posted on IT Brief, Communications minister David Cunliffe has promised that New Zealand will rank among the top half of OECD countries for broadband uptake, speed and coverage within two years. Furthermore a strategy has been put in place to ensure by 2018 80% of connections will be via Fibre to the Premise, delivering a promosed connection speed of 100Mbps.

The undertaking is one of several new targets announced on the 28th of August with the launch of the government's updated digital blueprint, Digital Strategy 2.0.
