NorthPower completes its leg of the UFB as Whangarei becomes first fully-fibred city — the lessons for Chorus
NorthPower Fibre has completed its leg of the UFB rollout, making Whangarei the first fully-fibred city. ICT Minister Amy Adams is heading up north for the official completion ceremony on Thursday. The target completion date was the end of June.

Of course, planning and logistics are easier when you're focussed on a single city, and dealing with a single local authority.
