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)
We recently had to go to Auckland and stay overnight. Despite arriving late in the day when we checked in we found our room not ready. Why? Because the hotel had less than half its housekeeping staff complement. On discussion with the night manger he said they were paying above award wages, and had nine applicants for advertised jobs they made appointments for in the last two days.
None turned up for an interview!!!! They just cannot get staff and he said it was the same across Auckland
They had multiple roles open for reliable people and could not fill them.
Is it any wonder our unemployment rate is going up?
