Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)

Infamous Titirangi chickens 'bok' on the streets after $25k removal

Kia ora neighbours, feral chickens that terrorised children and were blamed for an infestation of “cat-sized” rats are back on the streets, despite politicians spending thousands to remove them.

Titirangi has battled poultry problems for years and in 2019, the Waitākere Local Board paid $25,000 to get rid of more than 200 birds.

The removal of the chickens was requested by the majority of locals and 240 of the birds were captured and re-homed, but local board deputy chairperson Greg Presland said not every single bird was captured.

Years on, a flock of about 30 birds are roosting by Titirangi library, driving residents “mad” with constant crowing.
