Estimating the Wider Socio-economic Impacts of Ultra Fast Broadband for New Zealand

Sapere was engaged by Chorus to estimate in monetary values the benefits to consumers from Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB). The intent is to establish a baseline and stimulate further interest in an area that is under-researched. It is a contribution to the discussion and debate, rather than the final word.

This report complements earlier work in which we estimated the gains in business productivity and GDP of UFB. It draws from separate reports summarising relevant literature and describing in more detail our method for estimating the benefits.
