2degrees acquired UFB pioneer Snap

Today mobile carrier 2degrees have confirmed a long running rumour – and have announced an agreement to acquire Christchurch headquartered Snap.

Snap were one of the earlier Internet Server Providers (aka Retail Service Providers) to offer Ultra-Fast Broadband services in the New Zealand market.

The process of merging the two entities is expected to take some 3-4 month to complete and for the merge to be delivering noticeable benefits to customers.

Ultra-Fast Broadband Blenheim rollout complete

Blenheim has been added to the other New Zealand towns which now have reached a completion of the Government’s Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) initiative. Communications Minister Amy Adams today announced the completion today of UFB fibre internet services past some 12,500 homes, schools, businesses and health facilities.

Uptake has been swift with Ms Adams advising “The uptake in Blenheim has been one of the highest in the country with over 14 per cent of residents already signed up for UFB”.

“Businesses with a high internet use have double the growth, exports and job creation rates compared to companies with a low web presence. BP Computers in Blenheim is a good example of a local business benefiting from UFB,” says Ms Adams.

“The company, which has nine staff, serves the Marlborough and Kaikoura region in all things IT related, but thanks to UFB the company has been able to expand its services nationwide – and still be based in Blenheim.

“The speed and reliability of UFB has allowed BP Computers to take on a major new contract, providing IT support to a nationwide franchise chain which has 250 stores across New Zealand.”

Other towns that have now considered fully fibred with UFB are Whangarei, Te Awamutu, Oamaru, Cambridge, Tokoroa, Hawera and Ashburton.

“Stage one of the UFB is well on target and extra funding of up to $210 million is planned so that the overall reach of UFB will lift from 75 percent to 80 percent of all New Zealanders.

“We are also investing $100 million to expand the Rural Broadband programme, and $50 million to improve mobile coverage in black spot areas along main highways and in popular tourist destinations,” says Ms Adams.
