28 Aug 2019

Vodafone New Zealand has announced it has switched on six new 4G sites in the Kaipara, Far North and Whangarei districts of the Northland Region as part of the government-backed Rural Broadband Initiative Phase Two (RBI2), designed to improve mobile and broadband coverage in remote areas of the country. The operator notes customers can now access wireless broadband and VoLTE services, while its Farmside rural broadband subsidiary is now able to connect more of rural New Zealand than ever before.

Sharina Nisha, Vodafone’s head of Networks and Platforms, commented: ‘For rural New Zealand to remain competitive they need fast broadband and mobile coverage – not just in offices, but on farms, in schools, and on the roads.’
