Key Market Insights

Fixed Voice

  • Fixed voice (incl. VoIP) service revenue will continue to contract at a CAGR of 11.6% over FY23/28 to reach NZ$164m, as subscribers shun the landline and migrate away from standalone fixed voice services to mobile-only and broadband + VoIP bundles.


  • Mobile service revenue fell in the FY21-FY22 period due to COVID movement restrictions but has resumed growth from FY22 onwards. Overall, mobile service revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.1% over FY23/28 to reach NZ$2.46b.
  • The main drivers are population growth, a rising proportion of post-paid plans, and migration to higher data allowances.
  • Mobile hardware revenue will decline at 2.3% CAGR over FY23/28 to reach NZ$828m as higher handset prices are offset by more BYOD and longer replacement cycles.

Fixed Broadband

  • Fixed Broadband revenues are expected to grow across the forecast horizon at 3.8% CAGR over FY23/28, driven by CPI-linked wholesale price increases, some household growth, and migration to higher speed plans, to reach NZ$1.86b in FY28.
  • FWA penetration has been rising and the trend is expected to continue, albeit at a slower rate.
