The company, whose origins go back a decade to a Wellington City Council city-wide network project, has about 400 customers in the capital for its fibre-optic ethernet network. It’s expanding its Wellington activities by offering a centralised storage service (see Broadband firm branches out into storage business).
MacEwan says it’s also “cautiously” getting into the Auckland market. It has laid about 4km of fibre in the Auckland CBD (compared with 60km slung alongside Wellington’s trolley bus cables). “We’re creating the physical infrastructure before a business infrastructure.”
