Broadcasting, Communications and Digital Media Minister Kris Faafoi says improvements to the Emergency Caller Location Information (ECLI) service will further enhance this potentially life-saving technology.

The changes are currently being rolled out and will be completed in mid-2020, says the minister.

This means 111 calls made from all mobile phones in New Zealand will soon have their locations verified, regardless of platform.

"Emergency services have told us that the location service is already making a huge difference," says Minister Faafoi.
