The Government has announced $1.5Bn worth of investment to provide fibre optic cables (dark fibre) as the basis for the new broadband infrastructure.

Unfortunately, Kerikeri is not in the 25 largest centres that the money is being spent on. Hopefully the rich and famous who live or holiday locally will generate some reason to increase our chances of getting a slice.

Here are the places deemed large enough:

The 25 centres, in order of population, are: Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington, Hamilton, Napier and Hastings, Dunedin, Tauranga, Palmerston North and Fielding, New Plymouth and Hawera, Kapiti and Levin, Nelson, Rotorua, Whangarei, Invercargill, Wanganui, Gisborne, Cambridge and Te Awamutu, Blenheim, Timaru, Taupo, Masterton, Whakatane, Ashburton, Tokoroa, and Oamaru.

Come on people bring the cable up here!
