So, it's election time.

 

We took a look to see what the contenders are offering that benefits the Internet. The usual technology policies have been a little slow to emerge, perhaps due to COVID-19 distractions, which is a little surprising when we consider how critical the Internet, and other technologies, are to getting through the pandemic and to our economic recovery.

Our hope is that the next Government takes the steps that are needed to make technology, and the changes it brings, work for all New Zealanders. 

 

That means more investment in digital inclusion, a compelling vision for how we’ll all work to help people harness the power of the Internet, and changes in how government works to make the most of the opportunities in front of us.
