3,000 Thames homes and businesses are now Ultra-Fast Broadband ready with Chorus having completed the fibre build in Thames.
Coromandel MP Scott Simpson was on hand at Gert Van Eeden’s home as Chorus technicians connected his property.
“Chorus tell me there has been a good uptake by people and businesses wanting to be connected to Ultra-Fast fibre internet said Mr Simpson.
“Increased speed and reliability mean the ultra-fast option is making a positive change for users both personally and for local businesses.
“Now Chorus have finished their work, the opportunity for Thames people to connect is ready and waiting.
“I know that Gert and his family will be experiencing the improvement in connectivity and so are hundreds of other Thames locals.
“Chorus have confirmed they are ahead of schedule in terms of their roll out plans for other Coromandel communities and I know those locations will be as keen to get connected as Thames people are.
