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)

COVID-19 delays to recycling

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Unfortunately, 50% of our waste contractors are currently unwell with COVID-19 or other seasonal bugs, which means there will be significant delays to kerbside waste collections.

Unfortunately, 50% of our waste contractors are currently unwell with COVID-19 or other seasonal bugs, which means there will be significant delays to kerbside waste collections.

Kerbside rubbish and co-mingle recycling (wheelie bins and bags) are being prioritised, but there may be some delays. If yours is missed, please leave it out overnight for collection the next day.
Glass collections will be put on hold from Monday 27 June for an estimated two weeks.

You can still drop your glass items off for free at the Recycling Centre at the Southern Landfill or stockpile clean items until collections restart.

We wish our contractors a speedy recovery.

Thank you all for your patience 🙏
