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.

We have Rural Broadband (4G). We were sold this as better than the VDSL (copper wire) we had in Jan 2016. Initial speed was 38.91 down and 11.37 up, which was very acceptable. However this did not last. Over the year it slowly deteriorated and on the 30th Jan this we hit rock bottom at 7 down and 1.4 up. Support to date to resolve has been disgusting. No communication the biggest issue. Have even raised a complaint via their Web site which promised a response in 24 hrs which ...read more
Was great in the beginning. Signal strength excellent. Price reasonable.
Terrible speeds. Fluctuates something wicked. So bad at time that our accounting software (in the cloud) will time out.

Maail does not filter junk
Connection gets very slow at peak times

Although I did not chose what you recommended for me, it gave me an idea of what to choose.

Useless: in Europe the 'service' offering would contravene the consumer protection act
You have to be kidding me!
Utterly useless. In the year we have had the service the phone only worked in the last 5 weeks and the, so called, broadband is so degraded and contested as to be virtually unusable. I have spent literally hours and hour ...read more

I have been with Spark for several years now - Home line, Broadband and cellular. I don't consider them the cheapest but overall they give a great service and I am happy with them.
They seem to be the follower rather than the leader in pricing - awaiting to see if they are losing customers then move in offering existing customers with better deals. e.g rollover data and talk minutes on Cellular and increased speed on adsl.
If you are thinking of moving contact them and ...read more
For Support - use online chat. You can type in the problem and all the details - that way support team don't have to throw a lot of questions or guess what you are trying to say.
I have heard negative comments about th ...read more
Broadband slows down sometimes to a complete stop from 3 minutes to the hour too about 7 minutes past the hour. Why is this? Is everyone logging on at the same time?
Also - are they throttling down the speed on cert ...read more

Possibly the worst provider in terms of reliability. The connection cuts of for long periods on a day to day basis. Wouldnt have internet connection when needed the most. Have to toggle between 4g and this like right now. Yes you guys do have courtesy 4g, but doesnt help me using a diff mobile provider. Frustrated!!
The price (which i got switching from another provider)- usually not competitive
Disrubted connection, slow!

Only found out I was in huge arrears with Spark when I called in a fault. My weekly AP had been in place since commemcing act however no one bothred to phone me to let me know
Need to make person to person contact about billing. Do not leave customers unknowingly in arrears and reap more money via penalty fees!!!
Edward10th January 2018
do not require unlimited data, and price is high for a single user
