Chorus Regional Transport (CRT) is an optical transport network that connects New Zealand's major urban centres with 1Gbps, 10Gbps or 100Gbps bandwidth options. It allows you to expand your networks to the edges, to become more localised and meet the growing demand for bandwidth.

As demand for new technologies, such as virtual reality grows, so too does the demand for bandwidth. This is why we’ve developed Chorus Regional Transport (CRT), a service that meets your optical transport network needs.

Connecting New Zealand's major urban centres, Chorus Regional Transport is competitively priced. Chorus Regional Transport is provided from exchange to exchange. This can then be handed over to a number of other Chorus products, depending on your current network setup (e.g. Commercial Colocation, DFAS, Handover Connection).

We have extensive national coverage, including Cook Strait connectivity, with an ever increasing footprint. Indicative maps are published on the support section.
