SPARK DATA

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.

Christmas Cheer

Kiri from Bader

I'm Kiri, a Neighbourly member. My life on Bader has been pleasant, I quite like Bader Street there is much to see just sitting at your window. There are many young people some school children and also pre-school age. Lot's of Maori faces and peppered amidst them all, are New Zealand Kiwi's, Hindu Indian, Asian and British families, etc. Each in their own way very special and very unique. Unfortunately for the very few neighbours such as the 81, Bader St with the many robbery attempts crime has woven its many faces. The car's screeching to a halt on their brakes to avoid collision with a young Maori child left to wander on to the road, young Maori people some with families causing all kinds of ruckus, yelling and swearing at the top of their lungs from daily eventually makes one such as I very weary particularly of young Maori youth. The drug shops that once stood on the street have since moved on, however, the Police still call frequently and blurs the events that take place either long before they arrive or directly after and usually by culprits themselves. Sometimes it can become quite frightening but no matter how mellow dramatic there is a sereness that I like to call home.
If you have something you would like to share I am almost certain someone such as myself would love to hear from you, just to share those odd moments and when enough is enough.

In the meanwhile, I would love to thank everyone on Bader and neighboring areas for my life here and the lives of my children, grandchildren, great-granddaughter, brothers, and sisters extended whanau who will all grow to enjoy the many tall tales of Hamiltons, Bader Street.

Merry Xmas and have a wonderful New Year.
