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)

The savvy first home buyer will recognise that building your equity position in your first home is a great way to get a head start. By adding value as you can afford, a bit of modernising, some painting etc will most surely help you move up the property ladder to your next home in no time. The Developer or Investor may see this as an attractive land bank option for a potential future development opportunity (Council Permitting).

What ever your plan, with so many options you’ll need to view early, get organised, and be quick! My vendors are serious about selling and this property will not sit. This property is currently tenanted and the tenants would love to stay on, viewings by appointment.
