All percentages are based on counts which have been randomly rounded to base 3. Therefore, the figures may not sum to 100 percent. Results should be treated with caution due to the small number of ISPs in some categories.


The IPv6 is the next generation Internet protocol which greatly expands the IP number space and is the approved standard to replace IPv4

The Internet Service Provider (ISP) Survey is a survey sent to all New Zealand-based Internet service providers. The target population for the ISP Survey in 2018 was 92 businesses


Businesses that provided other Internet services, such as web and domain hosting, but that did not provide ISP services, were excluded from the population. This is because the primary activity of an ISP is providing a connection to the Internet. Web-hosting units do not meet this condition, but rather, provide Internet-based services. Businesses that provide only occasional or unmetered access (including Internet cafes, kiosks, libraries, and universities) are also excluded. The activity of this group is covered by the ISP each business subscribes to, and so do not need to be surveyed separately.
