Following the success of the first round of Chorus cabinet art in Palmerston North, Chorus and the Palmerston North City Council are working together on transforming a second round of cabinets into art works in the city’s streets.
Chorus today announced that the Chorus Board has appointed Dr Patrick Strange as chairman from 1 September 2015.
Chorus has today reported a net profit after tax (NPAT) of $91m (FY14: $148m) and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of $602m (FY14: $649m) for the year ended 30 June 2015.
Chorus has today advised that a technical fault, relating to capacity, with hardware at our Mayoral Drive facility means that we are currently having issues with provisioning new fibre connections and changing fibre plans in parts of Auckland.
Chorus has today called on the Commerce Commission to more clearly ground its work on the FPP in credible New Zealand costs when it delivers its final determination.
New in Gigabites
Global gigabit speed wars Network operators around the world have launched a speed war as they bring to market lightning-fast 10Gbps services in a bid for the title of ‘fastest in the country’.
Fibre demand outstrips DSL and SKY New Zealand’s demand for fibre broadband is fast outpacing what was achieved with traditional copper broadband and SKY’s pay TV when you compare early adoption rates.
Role of G.Fast in our fibre future G.fast broadband is causing a huge buzz in Europe and to a lesser extent across the Tasman due to its ability to deliver “fibre like” speeds of 100Mbps or more over copper.
Chorus has finished work upgrading a number of broadband cabinets in various rural regions, meaning more local residents can now benefit from better broadband services.
