Debi from Hamilton East

we have been a spark customer for over 2 years. since the start of the WRC in japan we noticed a spike in our data usage in the short space of 2 weeks. we have been on a 20GB plan and have seldom if ever been over 10GB but suddenly we started receiving emails telling us we have requested an upgrade to 60GB. we were then sent an email saying we had reached our 20GB quota and would be charged $10 for an extra 10GB. we have been on the phone to the Philippines all last week complaining about it but no one from spark has replied. attached is the snags we took of our usage over the long weekend while our modem was unplugged as was requested by spark. they still will not reply. how is it that we are being charged data download when our modem is unplugged and our computers are off? I suggest everyone who is with spark or skinny check their usage history.

People feeding dogs

Rhiannon from Silverdale

Kia Ora taatou,

We have a dog on our section and there is this one person who on two occasions I’ve caught in the act feeding our dog when we’ve asked him not to and he denies every time even though I’ve just seen him. Could we as a neighbourhood stop people from feeding other people’s dogs as I’m sure other dog owners would appreciate this too.
