UFB: Ultra fast broadband
TUANZ: Telecommunications Users Association of New Zealand
SME: Small and medium-sized enterprises (Less than 20 employees)
Corporate: Businesses with 20 or more employees
The results were segmented in two categories: SME and corporate. These were defined based on the employee count of the business (SME: 0-19; Corporate: 20+).
Some visualisations of the data do not include responses such as 'Don't know'.
Limitations of the data
The survey group was TUANZ members. They tend to be managers rather than technical, which explains why some don't know what connectivity they have. The respondents don't represent the general public or the SME community but those who have an interest in the telco space.
The total sample size was 216 respondents therefore smaller values should be viewed with caution.

Purpose of collection
This survey was conducted by TUANZ and Crown Fibre Holdings in June 2015 to see how the environment had changed in the time since the last survey was undertaken in 2010. That survey was at the beginning of the UFB build and so there was little uptake and was looking at the likelihood of uptake. Half way through the build,TUANZ are wanting to see who's taken it up and if not, what the barriers are.
