What will RCG deliver?

Hundreds of cell sites to deliver mobile and broadband services.

The RCG will build a minimum of 400 new mobile cell-sites, delivering high speed wireless broadband to at least 30,000 additional rural New Zealand households. This will increase New Zealand’s mobile land coverage area by up to 25 per cent, and deliver mobile calling and data service to a further potential 780 kilometres of New Zealand’s state highways. It aims to provide high-speed broadband to the greatest possible number of rural users and improve mobile on state highways and at key visitor destinations. The technology will also be on a future-proofed technology pathway – starting with 4G, and moving rapidly to Internet of Things, 5G mobile and beyond.
