The total number of mobile phone subscriptions in New Zealand increased by a third to more than 2.5 million over the past year. “Smartphone use is rising quickly and people are increasingly connecting to the Internet using these devices wherever they go,” said New Zealand’s information and communication technology statistics manager Hamish Hill.
Statistics New Zealand produces reports of Information and Communication technology (ICT) surveys. Results for the next ICT reports, the Business Operations Survey, and the Household Use of ICT Survey will be released in March 2013. New Zealand Internet Stats can be seen at Internet World Stats.
