We have been providing Vital communications for over 25 years. From a dream to build the best telco in New Zealand, a company that keeps its promises, delivers great service and provides investors with strong returns, the Vital story began.
The company, then called TeamTalk evolved through the 90’s building on its early successes in delivering nationwide radio communications. At the same time another vision was beginning at CityLink where a revolution established the capital as one of the world’s best-connected cities by attaching fibre-optic cable to the city’s trolley bus wires and power poles.
Both companies continued to grow. In 2001, we acquired the FleetLink assets from Telecom and launched a data storage service followed in 2002 with CafeNET: the first to launch Wi-Fi zones in New Zealand. In 2004 the company listed on the NZX and over the next few years a number of acquisitions occured which diversified the business.
Now under one brand we are a provider of fundamental nationwide infrastructure which is Vital to New Zealand. We own and operate fibre infrastructure in Auckland and Wellington and are well positioned to take advantage of growing data consumption. Our current investment we are making into our fibre will ensure a more resilient network scaled to meet future customer requirements.
We are the largest commercial provider of nationwide radio in New Zealand and also provide linking radio services through microwave to some of the remotest parts of New Zealand. We are well positioned to take advantage of the transition of our network to digital and the additional services this provides. We serve many customers across different sectors including; Government, Civil Defence, Emergency Services, Health, Utilities, Public Transport, Education, Logistics & Freight, Agriculture and Channel partners.
We look forward to providing Vital services for another 25 years.
