Slow internet speeds hamper hospital’s links

SHARE

A slow internet connection at Oamaru Hospital continues to cause problems, even though ultra-fast broadband (UFB) is available.

While the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment may have delivered its promise to install broadband fibre to the front gate at Oamaru Hospital, the hospital’s internet speed is still languishing at a speed of 20MB-per-second, rather than the 100MB-per-second UFB is capable of providing.

Oamaru Hospital is run by council-owned company Waitaki District Health Services and is required to set up its own high-speed internet connection through their internet service provider.
