Telecom and Crown Fibre ultra fast broadband hold up

A deadline to agree where the fibre for the new Ultra Fast Broadband network will be layed down has been missed. The plan was meant to be agreed on within 30 days of Telecom securing its $929 million contract with the Crown, which happened on May 24.

Telecom spokesman Ian Bonnar has said the delay is because they are working through settling on the final stages of the agreement.

“We want to make sure that we have a plan that meets the Crown’s objectives to target high-priority customers and will be delivered on time, ” said Bonnar, going on to say,

“We believe a fundamental key to successful projects is that a little more time spent up front planning significantly increases the likelihood that outcomes will be delivered on time and in full.”
