Ultrafast broadband comes to the Western Bay
Two companies are hard at work in the Western Bay extending ultra-fast broadband to our communities.
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. Aongetete and Te Puke are due for completion in late 2019.
