Ultrafast broadband in the Western Bay
Two companies are hard at work in the Western Bay extending ultra-fast broadband to our communities.
Work is due for completion in Paengaroa in late 2020 and in Pukehina in mid-2022.
In January 2017, Chorus reached an agreement with Crown Infrastructure Partners to extend ultra-fast broadband to 169 new areas nationwide, including the Western Bay communities of Waihi Beach, Te Puna, Paengaroa, Maketu and Pukehina.
Hamilton-based Ultrafast Fibre (UFF) has completed broadband installations in Katikati, Omokoroa and Plummers Point, Aongatete and Te Puke.
Expected completion dates:
|Omokoroa + Plummers Point||Completed|
|Paengaroa||Mid to late 2020|
