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)
The West Coast's four councils have secured $900,000 of funding to defer construction and demolition waste from landfill.
The Buller District Council, Grey District Council, Westland District Council (WDC), and the West Coast
Regional Council (WCRC) secured the funding from the Waste
Minimisation Fund (WMF).
WCRC consents and compliance manager Colin Helem said the focus was primarily on the recovery, reuse, and reprocessing of construction materials such as timber and steel to cut down the significant volumes of building waste entering landfills.
"It is not about building a landfill for construction and demolition waste.”
WDC operations manager Erle Bencich said consultant company Tonkin + Taylor would complete a feasibility study to test the project’s market viability. The results were expected at the end of the year.
“We target January 2023 to review the outcome of the feasibility study and decide how to proceed," Buller District Council solid waste management coordinator Juliana Ruiz said.
The WMF supports projects in New Zealand that increase the reuse, recovery, and recycling of materials. The WMF was set up by central government and is financed out of waste disposal levies.
