Rural – Ultra Fast Broadband initiative for Patumahoe

First and foremost, thanks to Alan Cole who saw a further $150 million investment in the rural Ultra Fast Broadband initiative come through in March this year, and registered interest for the communities of Clarks Beach and Patumahoe.

For a quick look at the current state of affairs, visit the Chorus Broadband Capability Map.

Auckland Council have contacted me and the more information we can provide, the more they are able to assess whether Patumahoe would be a suitable recipient of this fund.

Given the increasing residential growth in the community, the existing ADSL system may be less than adequate in the future for providing consistent, reliable and high traffic internet access.

Please take a couple of minutes to fill in the form below, so that we provide a collection of reliable data along with our register of interest.
