New Zealand - 3 biggest ISPs will share access to each other's unbundled exchanges to improve competition with TCNZ

[telecomsinsight] Three of New Zealand's biggest ISPs have agreed to share access to each other's unbundled exchanges in order to extend their geographic reach, lower access rates and increase data transfer speeds in areas where they do not already have facilities. They aim to provide 'much sharper' prices to compete more effectively with incumbent Telecom Corporation of New Zealand (TCNZ). Along with the incumbent's growing realisation that it needs to spin off its fixed network business, Chorus, BMI believes this move will go a long way towards making New Zealand's broadband market more competitive.
