Country’s Broadband Performed Well During COVID-19 Lockdown

As per the latest release from Commerce Commission, the country witnessed that average copper and fibre broadband connections faced no significant decrease in download speeds during lockdown, despite unprecedented demand on broadband networks.

As per Dr Stephen Gale, Telecommunications Commissioner, there was a huge demand in the number of people staying connected, learning, and working from home which affected heavy demand during the lockdown period.

The average download speed of Fibre Max plans increased by about 50 Mbps or 8% due to a rise in the average measured speed for one provider.
