A consortium of electricity lines companies is the latest party to be selected for prioritised negotiations as part of the Government's $1.5 billion ultra fast broadband (UFB) initiative.
Government agency Crown Fibre Holdings today said it had selected the Central Fibre Consortium for the areas covering Napier-Hastings, Palmerston North, Rotorua, Taupo, Pukekohe, Waiuku, Whakatane, Gisborne, Feilding and Masterton.
Companies in the consortium are Unison Networks, Counties Power, Eastland Group, Horizon Energy Distribution, and Central Lines.
The areas covered by Central Fibre are also among those for which Telecom was selected for prioritised negotiations.
Central Fibre chairman Simon Allen said it great to have his group and Telecom contesting the opportunity to become the Crown's partner for UFB in regional cities.
Fibre to the premise would make regional centres more competitive, improve health and education systems, and help local businesses connect to world markets, he said.
