Fibre is good for you

I’ve been saying that for a while, of course. But now the New Zealand Institute is saying so as well. According to the Institute’s latest publication, Defining a broadband aspiration, New Zealand stands to gain $2.7-$4.4 billion dollar per year if decent broadband is implemented across the country. To quote: There is a significant cost to waiting. The longer New Zealand waits, the more economic value it will forego and so New Zealand should apporach the investment in fibre with urgency.

Quite.
