Regional Marketing Plans for the H2 period (February - June 2021).

Our regional marketing activity is an extension of the “Fibre. It’s how we internet” campaign, focussing on building awareness and desire for fibre in areas that have lower uptake.

We’ll be adapting our fibre campaign and creating bespoke regional messaging which will be delivered through localised media, PR and direct comms.


What’s happening?


The “Fibre. It’s how we internet now.” campaign has been live on a national level in 2020 and we’re now focussing on specific regions. Creating micro campaigns to stimulate demand where there is the greatest opportunity. All areas being targeted are UFB1 areas.

The regions will be North Island focussed and include Wellington, Masterton, Kapiti Coast, Levin, Gisborne, Whakatane, Taupo, Napier/Hastings and Waiheke Island.

Given the size and opportunity of Wellington, we have broken out this region into the sub-regions of Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt and Wellington City.

See the calendar below outlining timing and opportunity size in each region i.e. the number of customers in these areas that don’t yet have fibre.

Media and messaging


The detailed media schedule per region is available in the regional marketing plans pack. The general media channels we will use are below:

  • Press
  • Radio
  • OOH (out-of-home) – billboards, dairy posters, street posters. 
  • Digital – targeted digital banners, Neighbourly activity, Met-Service placements.
  • Facebook and Instagram.
  • Direct Mail to fibre-eligible houses.
  • Local PR. 

Localised messaging has been created to suit each of the regions to aid cut-through. For example, the below messaging will be used in Masterton. 

Headline: Get internet that’s faster than this year’s Golden Shears champion. Ask for fibre. It’s how we internet now.
