The reach of Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) fibre Internet in New Zealand was announced in 2009 as expected to reach 75% of the population by 2020. In 2015 it was announced that this would be expand to reach at least 80%. Now it’s been confirmed by Minister for Communications Hon Simon Bridges that the reach of the expanded network will be between 84-85% by 2024. The total additional New Zealanders who will gain access to UFB fibre Internet will be 423,000 people.

Some 43 towns and cities that already have Ultra-Fast Broadband will see areas on the outskirts receive fibre connectivity as part of the UFB Expansion Project (sometimes called the UFB2 rollout). In addition, all of the following 151 new towns below will receive UFB fibre:
