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)

I meet Simon O'Connor today at my daughter's school fun run. I approached him to talk about his post celebrating taking away woman's reproductive rights in USA.

Simon was clear that it didn't matter what any of his constituents said that he was never going to change his mind.

In his mind there is no exceptions - I asked him if my 10year daughter was raped tonight and became pregnant would he like to be able to make her give birth- yes was his answer.

It's not my job to tell my neighbours what to think I just thought I'd share what happened.

We would all share costs equally, with the studio space (large, warm, heated, insulated, private “rumpus room”, in my central Remuera home). NO CHARGE for use of the space.Easy street access and parking. I am a Kiwi painter, (UC Berkeley. Certificate in Studio Art - acrylic on large scale canvas, who exhibited professionally in San Francisco for a decade or so, was there for over 20 years, and need to work my artistic skills back up, following hiatus). Can store your drawing boards/easels if needed etc. Share all costs of professional models, etc equally. Light refreshments and good music possible, if wanted (to be decided by group). Must be light-hearted, good sense of humor, wanting to improve art practice. Can decide times etc later. I am a school teacher, so must be after work hours. Let me know what you think. All expressions of interest will be welcomed. Would like to avoid strong solvents. Also seeking professional models. Tim
