More homes, schools and businesses in Kapiti now have access to world-leading fibre-to-the-premises under the Government's Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) programme, Communications Minister Amy Adams says.

The latest results for phase one of UFB as at 30 September 2015 were released today.

"By 2019, 75 per cent of New Zealanders will have access to fibre under the first phase of our UFB programme. Kapiti's build is on track and we're seeing good uptake across the region. Faster, more reliable broadband will bring significant social, educational and economic benefits to this community," Ms Adams says.

In Kapiti, under UFB phase one:

  • The build is 30 per cent complete
  • 5547 homes, schools and businesses can connect

    The rollout in Kapiti will be completed in 2019.

    "Across New Zealand uptake of UFB services has increased to 16.4 per cent and we're five per cent ahead of schedule. With the build completion on track, the Government is now focused on the extension of UFB to at least 80 per cent of New Zealanders," Ms Adams says.
