New Zealand’s largest alternative fixed line operator, TelstraClear, says it has completed a NZD1.2 million (USD900,000) upgrade to its cable networks in Wellington and Christchurch. The upgrade, which will boost peak broadband internet speeds to 25Mbps from the current 10Mbps, has been carried out using equipment supplied by Motorola. A launch date for the new faster services has not been announced. TelstraClear has 70,000 cable TV customers in the two cities, with around 45% of these signed up for broadband internet services, The Dominion Post reports.
