Broadband Services in the Bay of Plenty - A Template for Infrastructure Development

Bay of Plenty councils have developed a guide for communities, organisations and businesses to get better broadband, to coincide with the release of the government's ultra fast broadband and rural broadband initiatives.

The new guide identifies the technologies available and suggests ways to work with telecommunication providers to get better broadband services to their businesses, schools and communities.

Business Case Study

Bay of Plenty Regional Council has carried out a business case study that looks at how councils can improve capability and accessibility to broadband services in the Bay of Plenty. The study was carried out in association with the region's city and district councils, economic development agencies and industry representatives.

Councils can refer to the study when making decisions about any possible future involvement in broadband and associated services. The study can be used to suggest changes to policy documents, or for reviewing codes of practice for certain developments as indirect actions that councils could do.
