8 Aug 2017

New Zealand-based 2degrees has selected Chorus to be its primary provider of national backhaul under a ‘multi-year’ contract, it announced in a press release. Commenting on the deal, 2degrees’ Chief Fixed Officer said: ‘We have extensive network reach across NZ and our 100Gbps backbone, provided by Chorus, will give 2degrees’ biggest corporate customers the connectivity and security they need … By combining 100Gbps links into our network we’re future proofing our ability to support the ever-increasing data demands of the country’s largest enterprises, for whom having this capability is critical.’ 2degrees and Chorus will reportedly commission the new 100Gbps this month, with the former claiming to be the latter’s first national 100Gbps customer.
