Telecom broadband to be headed by Chorus

Chorus has planned to provide Ultra fast broadband to all New Zealanders. Chorus will be lead by its new Chief executive Mark Ratcliffe and he has planned to work full time and to ensure Chorus participation in providing the high speed internet facility.

Brian Hall will now be the new financial officer of Chorus in an acting capacity. Telecom Chief executive Paul Reynolds said that, “A number of our people from across the Telecom group have been seconded in recent months to work through all aspects of the ultra fast broadband project, and the size and scope of this team requires the very senior leadership and acumen that Mark Ratcliffe can bring to it.”

Chorus has planned to press ahead to provide broadband through fiber optics throughout the nation.
