A Māori director of Two Degrees believes the time is right to bring more Māori investors into the mobile phone company.

Antony Royal also sits on Hautaki, the commercial arm of Te Huarahi Tika Māori Spectrum Trust, which owns shares on behalf of all Māori.

He says Hautaki directors hope to start on-selling some of those shares to other Māori organisations.

A similar exercise before the network launched had little success, with only two central North Island land trusts, Tuaropaki and Wairarapa Moana, buying shares.

But Mr Royal says now the company has been going for a couple of years, Māori organisations will be in a better position to understand the business.

Do Maori win or lose from SkyCity deal?
MARTYN BRADBURY OPINION: If one were to watch the latest SkyCity TV advert that displays lots of Maori working behind the scenes at their Casino, one would suggest that SkyCity is trying to create the belief that they're industry is less insidious vice and more indigenous rights.
