Abstract

This IDC Market Perspective discusses the arrival of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite broadband service in New Zealand and its impacts on the New Zealand broadband market.

"LEO broadband is shaping up to be a superior solution for consumers and small business in areas outside of the UFB fibre footprint than current options," states IDC senior research manager Monica Collier, "and this puts an immediate competitive threat on to rural broadband providers whose services are mostly slower, with datacaps, yet at a comparable price point to Starlink's Beta service."
