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?

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)

Bullying …

Markus from Green Bay

I just read the following article:


When I finished primary schooling there were two choices for secondary school, both equally distant. My parents chose one for me, but all the other kids from my school went to the other.

When school started two things became quickly obvious:

• everyone else had come in groups of three to six kids from their primary class
• we had three bullies in the class

The individual groups quickly closed ranks, and the bullies zoomed in on the lone target - me.

Now I hated the bullies - but I ABSOLUTELY DESPISED those just standing by and being relieved that it was someone else getting the abuse.

Which is why I NEVER have and NEVER will just stand by when someone is attacked.

The important lesson:

Bullying isn't the problem of the victim.

It isn't even the problem of the bullies.

It is a FAILURE of the class, school, and parents, of every single person lacking the moral courage to stand up against what is wrong.

People who rather go along with the attacks than stand up against them and risk becoming a target as well.

If you ever wondered how the Nazis could take over Germany - THAT is the very reason.

So my question to every parent: what have you taught your kids about bullying?
