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 nationwide and meet the ever increasing demands 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 Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) Points of Interconnect (POI’s) in the major urban centres, Chorus Regional Transport supports the expansion of your network to provide a range of services across the country. Chorus Regional Transport is provided from exchange to exchange in specified locations nationwide and can then be handed over to a number of other Chorus products, depending on your required network setup (e.g. EdgeCentre Colocation, Commercial Colocation, DFAS ICABS, Handover Connections).

We have extensive national coverage between UFB POIs, including Cook Strait connectivity. Indicative maps are published on the support section.
