Via Southgate: New Zealand: WLAN use in the 6 GHz Band

New Zealand has now made 5925–6425 MHz available for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) following similar action in the UK and Australia.

RSM has now made the 5925–6425 MHz frequency band available for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) services under the Low Power Indoor (LPI) use and the Very Low Power (VLP) Indoor and Outdoor regimes through the Radiocommunications Regulations (General User Radio License for Short Range Devices) Notice 2022.
