Broadband upgrades for Te Kaha and Ohope

Regional Economic Development Minister Shane Jones has announced significant additional rural broadband and mobile coverage across New Zealand.

Te Kaha and Ohope are included in the areas that will see their broadband Internet capability upgraded.

The announcement and consequential work will take coverage to 99-point-8 per cent of the population.

Evolution Networks have been awarded a significant part of this roll out in the Eastern Bay.
