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)

Cats in Whangarei District to be desexed and microchipped

The Team from Whangarei District Council

Due to very popular demand over many years, our new rules for cats requiring them to be microchipped and desexed come into effect today. 🐈

Good for cats 😻✅
Good for critters! 🦎✅

Due to very popular demand over many years, our new rules for cats requiring them to be microchipped and desexed come into effect today. 🐈

Good for cats 😻✅
Good for critters! 🦎✅

Our Health and Bylaws Manager, Reiner Mussle, has been part of the team to put this together. “Desexing cats will cut down on unwanted litters and strays which prey on native birds and lizards to survive. Desexed cats are also less likely to roam and get injured fighting with other cats. Cats' microchips registered with Companion Animals New Zealand can be returned more easily if they get lost.”

We’ll be taking an educative approach to this issue rather than taking a hard line with enforcement. This means working with owners to encourage them to microchip, register and desex their cats, and connecting them with other community resources to do this if needed. It’s about encouraging responsible cat ownership.

During the recent review of our Animals Bylaw the public

told us they wanted greater controls for cats. We received over 1300 submissions about cats, with very strong support for cat microchipping and desexing 🙀
