Did you know fires have been banned and fire vigilance urged in this windy weather?

Denise Piper Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Fire and Emergency NZ has cancelled any fire permits in Northland and urged everyone to take extreme care, as the strong winds and dry weather creates difficult firefighting conditions until Monday. Firefighters are also on high alert, with helicopters at the ready, in case the wind causes flare-ups in one of three fires still burning in Kaipara and the Far North. This summer has been one of the worst fire seasons in decades, with nearly 3000 hectares burnt by four major fires, as well as numerous smaller vegetation fires.

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

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)
