Orewa boots up network

Fibre optic cables connect directly to homes

An open access fibre network is being piloted in a new housing development in Orewa, north of Auckland. The network, a joint project between Telecom Wholesale and WorldxChange Communications, will be used to deliver what the pair call "content rich" services.

Fibre optic cables connect directly to homes in the Kensington Park development, the first housing community project in New Zealand to have the open access fibre-to-the-home piloted, a statement says.

“These residents have the scope to enjoy a huge combination of applications such as high definition voice calling, video calling, IPTV, video-on-demand and home security systems,” Telecom Wholesale CEO Matt Crockett says.
