Just under 1400 Tauranga homes can now connect to the city's fibre network that is being built by Ultrafast. These homes went live on the network today, June 1, 2015.
Above: The coloured areas show where Ultra Fast Broadband is now available, as of June 1, 2015.
Today's milestone means the Ultrafast rollout in Tauranga is now 83.8% complete, with homes and businesses across 52,273 premises across the city now able to connect to the network and upgrade to Ultra Fast Broadband.
According to new figures released by Ultrafast in May, the project is on track to be 99.8% complete in Tauranga by the end of 2015.
Residents near Merriman Place in Pyes Pa, the Ariki Park area in Maungatapu and the Beachwater Drive area in Papamoa are encouraged to use Full Flavour's fibre address check tool for a proper confirmation.
