1868 __ New Zealand’s telegraph network
Comment : The coming of the telegraph established New Zealand standard time. By 1868 a telegraph network extended from Napier down to Bluff. But for efficiency telegraph operators had to observe the same time at all places on the network. The upshot was a parliamentary resolution establishing a standard New Zealand time. (Appendix to the Journals of the House of Representatives, 1868)
