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?

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)

As a regional council we want to be more transparent and accountable for the work we do for you, which is why we’ve made changes to how our rates are invoiced and paid.
If you are a ratepayer, your Bay of Plenty Regional Council rates will no longer be invoiced by your city or district council and instead, you will be invoiced directly by us.
Ratepayers will receive one annual invoice from Bay of Plenty Regional Council late August –September 2022, which is due on 20 October.
You can find out more about the changes, how much your rates will be for the 2022 -22023 rating year and how to get organised on our website.
