<span style="\"font-size:" 16px;\"="">Telecom Corporation of New Zealand Limited (Telecom) was formed in 1987 out of the telecommunications division of the New Zealand Post Office, a government department. In 1990 Telecom became one of the first telecommunications companies in the world to be fully privatised.
On 30 November 2011, Telecom demerged into two entirely separate, publicly listed companies; a retail services provider (Telecom) and a network services operator (Chorus).
Structural separation of Telecom's retail business from the business that owns and operates the Fibre-To-The-Premise (FTTP) network was a pre-requisite for participation in the Government's Ultra-Fast Broadband scheme (UFB).
Today, Telecom has a significant level of operational scale within the New Zealand telecommunications market, with many assets.
