Chorus says it miscalculated the rise in the number of broadband connections it provided in its last quarterly report and the increase was only about half what it had previously claimed.

The company had reported that its total number of broadband connections rose by 23,000 in the three months to the end of September, to reach 1.135 million.

But it said in an announcement to the NZX today that the total was 1.124 million and the actual increase only 12,000.

It had overstated the number of basic copper broadband connections by 11,000 because of a "data process change" which it said had now been corrected.
