"Communications and Information Technology Minister Steven Joyce today announced the government will be making more radio spectrum available for new and emerging commercial technologies. Radio frequency identification (RFID) systems such as those used in supply chain management and radio mesh networks used for smart metering will both benefit from the changes."

"Allocating more spectrum for these technologies will make it cheaper to deploy systems using them, and will encourage uptake"
