Today , Friday 21 Feb I went to my brothers house to help him with a new computer! The problem turned out to be the Fib re Broadband modem , problem diagnosed by the servicing department of a very large local computer business. This firm recommended we call Spark to have it replaced. Here's the result of my phone call to Spark . Long story short, they want $99.00 what they say is 50% of the modem cost???? or they will replace it free if my brother and his wife agree to sign up for a 12 month contract... To me that's pretty bad especially since my brother has been a long time customer . What say you neighbours???

Canterbury authorities have dropped their goal of 20 million annual bus trips by 2020 as public transport use declines in Christchurch.
The service, run by regional council Environment Canterbury (ECan), is to be overhauled in a plan that will contribute to a planned 9.8 per cent rates increase – almost double what was previously forecast.
