Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

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)

Uncontrolled intensification

Raquel from Remuera

Dear all, while intensification in Auckland may be necessary, the way the Labour goverment has decided to implement it - supported by National and the Greens - will result in the loss of quality of life in many areas, not to mention other problems. And the worse part is that the resulting houses are actually more expensive and less affordable!
The Auckland Unitary Plan has already in place a project to increase the number of houses according to the infrastructure capacity, environment protection, traffic limits, character and heritage status of every area, at a cost of 75 million of ratepayers money. Why on earth this government wants to scrap it, build to the maximum every available piece of land without consideration of the impact, not even providing for parking on site? Why this legislation was passed so quickly without involving key stakeholders like councils and removing our right for resource consent?
Please take a look at this petition and sign if you agree that we have legitimate reasons to reject this legislation.
Together, we have the power to stop it:
