Tech Talk: The Digital Divide

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:35 pm on 11 April 2017

New Zealand rural customers have long complained about getting left behind while their urban cousins move into the 21st Century. In terms of mobile coverage and broadband, this has always been a big issue. While city folk got 3G and 4G mobile services, fibre to the home and access to Netflix, rural customers are often left without connectivity of any kind, including basic mobile phone coverage.
