New Zealand Agency Begins Making Broadband Recommendations, Post Says

New Zealand’s Crown Fibre Holdings, the government agency responsible for a NZ$1.5 billion national broadband project, has begun recommending suitable partners to Communications Minister Steven Joyce, the Dominion Post reported, citing a person at the agency it didn’t name.

The recommendations follow talks with three companies who were earlier listed as priority bidders in eight regions, the newspaper said. Joyce is expected to act on the recommendations as soon as possible in order to get contracts signed and work under way, the Post said.
