Ultra Fast Broadband In Clive Next Month

Netflix will soon no longer buffer for 10 minutes in Clive and Haumoana as ultra-fast broadband installation nears completion.

The planned installation phase will be completed by the end of this month with residents and businesses hoping to have it ripple through the lines by June.

“Fibre will replace the current copper network, fibre is glass and transmits signals using light very much faster and much more capacity is able to be given,” Chorus communications manager Steve Pettigrew said.

During the past few months Chorus was in the “build phase” of the operation where contractors were installing the cable in the streets of people’s homes.
