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???

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...
We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.
New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.
Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
