Digitised Image

Broadband Highway. 'N Z traffic keep left'. 15 March, 2006.

Reference Number: DCDL-0001016

The scene is a wide highway with many lanes. On the far left lane which is labelled 'Slow lane' trundles a little old-fashioned car named 'Telecom'. The reference is to the fact that New Zealand has slow Internet speeds compared with other countries, especially Australia. The reason for this is that the CEO, Theresa Gattung, refuses to unbundle local loops which would force Telecom to rent its copper lines network to other companies.
