New Zealand’s high speed research network: at a critical juncture

Sapere was commissioned by the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment to review New Zealand’s Research and Education Network’s (REANNZ) current role in enabling high impact research as a specialist connectivity service.

We find that there is value in having a specialist network for the New Zealand research and education system. However, this value is not uniformly spread among institutions, as institutes engaged in highly data intensive research activities have a greater need for specialised connectivity.

The report also finds that REANNZ is currently in a precarious financial position, with costs rising to exceed revenues and poor member engagement.
