The government's ultra-fast broadband¬†rollout is ahead of schedule and 69 per cent complete, Communications Minister Amy Adams says.

Connections passed the 300,000 mark in the middle of last month, with nearly 50,000 made in the quarter ended September.

"Uptake nationwide has increased to 28.3 per cent," Ms Adams said.

"UFB is revolutionising New Zealand's connectivity - we are seeing it transform communities and businesses while bringing jobs to the regions."
