Fiber Infrastructure

These fiber assets include over 11,000 km of terrestrial fiber plus access to four subsea cables, namely TGA (46 percent owned), Aqualink (100 percent owned), and IRUs (Indefeasible Right of Use) on Hawaiki and Southern Cross.

Brand Recognition and Performance Metrics

The operator added that its rebranding has been well-received by New Zealanders, and almost all of One NZ's key metrics are now ahead of Vodafone NZ's, including awareness and non-customer consideration.

2G/3G Network Shut Down

Furthermore, One NZ noted that the full upgrade of the mobile network to 4G/5G, extending coverage with SpaceX, and the 3G and 2G shutdowns are all on track. The 3G Network is being retired by 2025, and the 2G Network by 2026, and the spectrum will be refarmed for increased 4G/5G performance, the company said.

From April 1, 2024, all electricity purchased by One NZ will be renewable, meaning zero Scope 2 emissions for power usage, the presentation said.
