Digital technology can make a significant, positive impact on our nation's social and economic wellbeing – enabling stronger, safer, more connected communities (even in the most remote rural areas), opening more opportunities for our children (regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds), and improving health outcomes for New Zealanders of all ages and walks of life.
It can enable Kiwi companies to compete - and win - on the world stage and become smarter, more agile businesses by harnessing all the benefits of new technologies such as Cloud services and the Internet of Things.
Spark's success is dependent on our customers in one key market: New Zealand. That's why we're passionate about using technology to be truly useful to our customers, helping make our country better and enriching the lives of all New Zealanders. We want to be the most valued brand in the home, and the most trusted partner for business.

We all know how confusing it is that ISPs advertise the same speeds... but are their speeds actually the same? According to the latest ADSL Truenet.nz report, the speed differences for NZ websites continue to show a wide spread on ADSL providers.

Spark 4G wireless broadband is our only real option as there is no spare copper cable to our new address and it would cost thousands to have one installed. Actually its a no-brainer as it is only slightly more expensive than the VDSL we had at our previous (neighbouring) address. We were near the limit of distance from the roadside cabinet.
Just slightly more expensive than VDSL and Landline phone. Free modem. Easy setup. Good incentive offer for changing at the time. Quite fast. VoIP, with NZ landline 'toll' calls free.
Rather expensive. Phone not available if electricity is off, though this is not too much of a problem if one has a mobile phone. Two year minimum term.

Broadband works satisfactorily and service when needed has been promote and satisfactory. We don't download large files eg films. I don't have another to compare with except Orcon for a short while and that was seriously bad.

we are paying for broadband and a lot of the time the speed is 0.80 or less there is fibre on our road but they well not hook any one up to it so we have to put up with slow speeds and some times we can not get on line
all we get from them is they is nothing wrong with our gear its because you are 6k from the exchange and you are on copper then we get billed $140.00 for then to have checked the line
nothing going for them
all they are after is your money
very poor service

the worst company i have ever dealt with
I purchased fibre 12 months ago and have nothing but poor speed no service,and no support. I gave up complaining six months ago as spark did not seem interested in any problem at all , so I just waited until my contract ran out and then just changed to another provider

Tried to upgrade to fibre 100. 2 months later, being billed for fibre 100 and yet to receive this service. Hopeless technical support.

Great products but one of the most expensive
Reliability, quick to sort a problem, professional
Too expensive, charge for keeping email address if you leave their company

See CONS - rip off
Easy quick setup
VERY ANNOYED - Beware anyone who 'upgrades' to 4G network on Sparks recommendation. Internet crud since installed, alarm system compromised and extremely expensive technician and parts updates required to work since - wh ...read more
