3 Aug 2009

New Zealand’s second largest broadband operator by subscribers, TelstraClear has revealed plans to invest NZD10 million (USD6.6 million) in the deployment of DOCSIS 3.0 technology across its hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) networks in Christchurch and Wellington. The upgrade could boost download speeds to over 100Mbps and is expected to be completed by March 2010. The firm also launched a new service across its HFC ‘WarpSpeed’ network in Wellington, offering peak download speeds of up to 25Mbps; the new service is available immediately. TelstraClear CEO Dr Allan Freeth said: ‘This is an investment in the future, a signal to businesses and households that if you are on the TelstraClear WarpSpeed networks you will always have speed to burn.’
