First off, I was thinking of the international trunks. Analog systems are so obsolete that it would cost more to maintain them then to replace. However, even domestically, the same still applies. I don't know if you're referring to New York City or New York State, but even assuming the city, Canada has about 4 × the population, or 16 × that of NZ, but the area of almost 10 million sq Kilometres is close to 40 times that of New Zealand, yet the analog phone system is long gone here.
BTW, I've worked in the telecommunications industry for most of my career and it's been over 30 years since the last time I saw an analog system. New Zealand would *REALLY* have to be a back water country to still be using an analog phone system.
