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)

Warning. Possibly a scam

Di from Nawton

Today I received an email message supposedly from NZ Post advising that they had not been able to deliver a package because no-one was home. They gave an option for times for it to be delivered, at a cost of $1.60.

Today I received an email message supposedly from NZ Post advising that they had not been able to deliver a package because no-one was home. They gave an option for times for it to be delivered, at a cost of $1.60.
Since no-one here had ordered anything, I was suspicious. Also in the past if something was undeliverable there was usually a note left at the door or in the letterbox, not an email communication. (where did they get my email address anyway?) A tracking number was at the top of the communication, but when I entered this on NZ Post website it was an invalid number. I suspect that if I'd clicked on the delivery time option it would have led on to a place to enter my bank account details......
Has anyone else had this sort of email?
