This Request for Proposal (RFP) is requesting proposals to enhance digital network infrastructure on and around specific routes in the West Coast and Southland regions.
The RFP proposes the following routes nominally following state highways:
(a) Fox Glacier to Lake Hawea: As well as enabling new and upgraded broadband access and providing backhaul service to mobile/wireless sites along the route, this infrastructure will also allow telecommunications providers to access an alternative diverse route to the existing fibres which are primarily on the East Coast of the South Island. The approximately 240km route generally follows State Highway 6 (SH6).
(b) Te Anau to Milford Sound: Milford Sound is a key tourism destination and forecasts predict increased growth of both terrestrial and cruise ship visitors. Businesses in Milford Sound and along the route will benefit from enhanced broadband and mobile services. The approximately 120km route generally follows State Highway 94 (SH94).
