Two Degrees Mobile Limited (as we are officially known) is New Zealand's newest full service telecommunications provider. 

Back in the 90s a visionary group of Maori challenged the crown through the Treaty of Waitangi and won the rights to 3G spectrum. Despite financial and regulatory adversity a Maori Trust (Hautaki) was established with the challenge of launching New Zealand’s third mobile network. 

Tex Edwards founded 2degrees in February 2001 and provided initial capital.  Later that year investments were made by Strive Masiyiwa’s Econet Wireless group and shortly afterwards the pan-Maori trust Hautaki.

After successfully advocating for critical regulatory realignment the company was fully capitalised in 2007 and construction of its mobile network began.

We commercially launched in 2009, significantly lowering the cost of mobile for Kiwis.

Tex Edwards sold his interests in 2degrees in 2016 after some 15 years of support for the company including as a senior executive, director and founding shareholder.

Since our launch we’ve been busy. We have the backing of a unique partnership of international and Kiwi investors that have enabled us to build a brand new mobile network, helping us to cover 98.5% of the places Kiwis live and work. In March 2015 we also acquired NZ's fourth largest ISP, and now offer broadband services as well as mobile to Kiwis across the country.

We've put in place a great team, led by our CEO Stewart Sherriff and an internationally experienced management team which has a wealth of experience in building and delivering excellent mobile telecommunication networks and services.

We all really believe in what we are trying to accomplish for our customers and New Zealand. We’ve even been lucky enough to be recognised for it along the way, with a number of awards for our customer service over the years.

And this is just the beginning...

Reliability has gotten worse this year. I never used to notice many connection drops, but the last couple of months I have noticed quite a few. I notice because I game a lot which requires consistent good latency. But then, perhaps I am gaming more than I used to? I normally get a latency of ~150ms with game servers being in Singapore. I've never need to use support so can't really objectively comment on that. I have not switched to fiber yet even though its up our street now. Thinking about switching soon though. ...read more

Nothing you have offered interests me. For $70.71pm I get broadband 80GB fibre & landline. Ideal for my home office.
Value for my needs
Data and speed caps may not suit all.

On a two-year contract, but when I renew in October will be looking closely for who has the best deal as it's expensive for relatively limited speed and not-infrequent drop-outs.

Not the cheapest, but good performance, good routing, and good value.
Fiber is very reliable - I'm not sure if it's ever gone down. It's fast, I get the performance I expect on the 100/20 plan.
The old Fritzbox 7390's Wifi isn't great, but I hear the newer one is better.
