Does it?  Those requirements include:
# It must have a decent connectivity (relative to the respective
country). [...]

I don't know NZ enough to comment whether it is "decent".
Thanks for contributing your local knowledge.

You write "99% of the NZ Internet", but the bug report says
"ftp.nz.debian.org is no longer accessible to the majority of
NZ internet users" which says to me either it's available to
<50% or the bug report is now inaccurate. Is there a
reference about how many are affected?
