Spark Broadband

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.

The service has always worked well. Some days there is slow internet or the internet will time out, but the service has been reliable and valuable.
Pros
It has good speed, reliablilty and the comapny is well known
Cons
The price is standard and does not stand out as being a great deal.

Internet kept dropping out and has done for months. Really annoyed at Sparks extra charge for paying by credit card, just greedy adding that!! They also charged me an "Inconvenience fee" because I was a couple of days late paying one bill. No customer good will there. Would never recommend them!!

expensive and slow
Pros
good app, reasonable service although always had to wait for a call back

Even though I was assured at sign-up that I could keep my non-Spark email address, the reality was different. Any time I made an unrelated change to my account (e.g. install fibre, quit my landline) my email access would disappear. I was then told it was impossible to use an email address from another ISP. After days of long phone calls the problem would eventually be escalated and resolved. The tech staff have zero empathy, only the 'customer retention' staff have that quality. But it's too late - I'm off. ...read more
Pros
100% reliable fibre
Cons
Non-Spark email not welcome. Billing account was not always delivered meaning I was often paying an overdue account.
