TelstraClear to upgrade broadband networks

11:15 am on 1 August 2009

TelstraClear is to upgrade its broadband networks in Wellington and Christchurch, to deliver faster internet access by next year.

The company says an $10 million investment in the networks will give customers speeds of 100 megabits per second - the same speed the Government is aiming for in a proposed 10 year fibre plan.

Telstraclear says it will immediately offer Wellington network customers a new broadband service of 25 megabits per second, which it says will be the fastest in New Zealand.
