Ultrafast Broadband in Waitara
The Government recently announced an extension to the UFB (Ultra-fast Broadband) programme by extending funding to an additional 200,000 New Zealanders. Certain towns around New Zealand have been indentified as potential areas to receive this next roll out, and Waitara is one of those. Click here for National Party's policy on UFB.
Waitara is a growing business community with a number of firms trading nationally and internationally. The ability for those businesses, and the Waitara community to connect to UFB fibre would be a real plus, with UFB a major key to driving business productivity and growth. It’s also a big help for the health, community and education sectors too.
I have been speaking with members of the local business community and it’s clear that Waitara’s eager to get on board with UFB fibre.
I am currently working on a strong case for Waitara to secure funding as part of the Government’s extension to its UFB programme and this includes collecting letters of support from businesses and community. If you are a business in Waitara and want to discuss UFB or be involved in our submission process please contact my office here or call 759 1363
