Broadband in New Zealand according to OECD: a six month update

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 19-Jul-2012 10:30

About six months ago I posted some New Zealand broadband statistics collected from the OECD Broadband portal. These numbers have now been updated by the OECD, and here is the latest numbers after six months:

1. Fixed broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants

December 2011: #17 (26%, 1,138,830 connections)
June 2012: #17 (26.9%, 1,174,790 connections)

Although not a change in position, a very small increase in connections.

2. Wireless broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants

December 2011: #14 (54%, 2,380,709 connections)
June 2012: #9 (67.5, 2.946,260 connections)

What an incredible jump for wireless broadband. This includes 53.7% mobile broadband as part of a mobile plan and 12.9% dedicated mobile data subscriptions. The other connections are satellite and terrestrial fixed wireless.
