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)

From local democracy reporter David Hill:

Dan Gordon is seeking a second term as Waimakariri mayor.

He confirmed this week he intends standing for the role again in the October local body elections.

Gordon said there were many issues to focus on over the coming years, including the ongoing impact of Covid-19, managing development and growth in Waimakariri, the Government’s reform programme, especially Three Waters, and managing climate change and its effects on the Waimakariri district.

‘‘This requires steady, knowledgeable leadership, and experienced council management to ensure the best outcomes for our community,’’ he said.

Gordon said he enjoyed working closely with the local Waimakariri community, representing it, and being an advocate for its views at local, regional and national level, and would continue to be a strong advocate, along with the council, for after-hours care at the Rangiora Health Hub, and the reopening and retention of services at Oxford Hospital.

‘‘Access to quality healthcare is important to our communities.”

A vibrant business community was also key in a growing district such as Waimakariri, he said.

‘‘The council, together with its economic development agency Enterprise North Canterbury (ENC), continues to be a strong advocate for attracting and retaining business.”

Gordon said he would continue to focus on delivering the objectives of the Waimakariri District Council's long-term plan, creating a balance between prudent and realistic costs for ratepayers, and the need to continue to maintain infrastructure to provide the best services to grow the district.

‘‘The community is at the centre of everything we do at the council.”
