Directory of retail service providers

Below is a directory of retail service providers (RSP) currently offering ultra-fast broadband (UFB) services over fibre and via the rural broadband initiative (RBI). This lists RSPs who have worked with, and will be providing information to the Ministry of Education on developing and testing products over fibre.

This directory is intended as a starting point for schools that have already received a Government funded fibre drop and are in the process of selecting an Internet service to enable UFB access. Please note – not all the providers listed will necessarily have developed products specifically for schools.

The Ministry does not endorse any specific RSPs and recommends that schools carry out usual due diligence before signing any service contracts.

The following lists RSPs currently available. As other RSPs’ services become available, this list will be expanded.
