The Dunedin ultra-fast broadband build was completed in 2018, providing most of the city with high connection speeds, however some suburbs were left without it.
The upgrade in Warrington, north of the city, was completed yesterday.
Dunedin Labour MP and Digital Economy and Communications Minister Dr David Clark said it would significantly improve the area’s connectivity.
The infrastructure would benefit 250 businesses and homes which had not been able to connect to the fibre before.
"This will be of great benefit to the area, as improved connectivity is a key driver of economic growth" he said.
Some have already ordered an upgraded connection, including Doug Hall, whose mother lives in the area.
He managed her internet connection and, as she had recently retired, her usage was about to go "through the roof", he said.
She would be able to easily stream shows and enjoy her connection with less stress.
He believed ultra-fast broadband was "better than sliced bread" and made a huge difference for businesses and homes.
