Government-led initiatives to foster use of faster broadband

New applications and services for Government

  • Through the ‘Open Door to Innovation’ initiative, with support from the ICT Ministers Group, ICT Chief Executives group, and the ICT Council.


Better access to government data

  • Users will be able to directly download data and directories, enabling them to develop a wide range of online services and tools.


Increased use of the web channel

  • The Rethink Online programme will reduce fragmentation and increase coordination of online services between agencies.


Centralised ICT services, business processes, and information

  • Deliver frontline services where they are needed most, at lower cost through one.govt and Infrastructure as a Service.


Other ICT initiatives now possible with faster broadband will develop within individual agencies.

  • For example, within NZTA, MSD and DOC.
