Where would we be now without UFB?

Clearly the decisions made about connectivity and fibre a few years back unknowingly prepared New Zealand for the Covid-19 pandemic. With remote technology uptake at an all-time high now, what does the future hold?

Join Chorus' Network Strategy Manager Kurt Rodgers as he talks through the UFB rollout (the good, the bad and the ugly), the massive rise in data consumption, HyperFibre, and the future of connectivity in New Zealand. This will be a hugely interesting talk.

As always, there'll be plenty of time for Q&A, with ITP CEO Paul Matthews putting your questions to Kurt.

The session will kick off with ITP's Tech Media Panel talking through the big tech news of the week.
