Help our elderly

Alistair from Sydenham

What we are looking for are any tvs and or little radios we can give to rest homes

We have found 90% of the rest homes are in lockdown due to covid being found in them

This means that the residents are confined to their rooms this is rather unfortunate as many do not have tv or radio in their rooms

So we are seeking any tvs and or radios and ariels we can drop off to the rest homes
Its bad enough being in isolation as many of us know but doubly hard for them as they cant have families visit either and then stuck in their room staring out the windows would be torture so am hoping some members may be able to help no bigger than 50inch due to space constraints in many rooms

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)
