Omokoroa welcomes roll-out of high speed

Ultrafast Fibre contactors from Bay Directional Digging working to install fibre ducts in Haden Place, Omokoroa, with fencing and environmental controls in place.

Omokoroa is one of the most recent areas in the country to welcome the start of work to expand the government's Ultra-fast Fibre Broadband network to their community.

Fibre laying is being carried out simultaneously in the three towns.

Omokoroa is one of three smaller areas in the North Island to see the early benefit of the Ultrafast Fibre second stage expansion along with Ngaruawahia, north of Hamilton and Stratford in Taranaki.

The three areas are part of the second wave of fibre installation by UFF which has already successfully completed deployment of a 3,000 kilometre fibre optic network to eight central North Island cities and towns.

The second tranche of fibre deployment, of which the three towns are a part, will also include Huntly, Kihikihi, Raglan, Eltham, Inglewood, Waitara, Putaruru, Te Puke, and Katikati.

UFF Chief Executive William Hamilton says the expanded network footprint has created a lot of interest from the benefiting towns.

“We know these smaller communities can hardly wait to be connected. We would love to deliver fibre to everyone immediately, but we do have a build programme to work through, stretching out for the next year or so,” says William.
