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.

We can only get a copper vdsl connection in my rural area and spark have been expensive with poor support during the time I have been with them. It was more of a case of spark/telecom being our our phone and dial up provider in the bad old days and they just kept adding costs and not much else! When they put the prices up this year and then dropped the lightbox offer I had finally had enough!
Reasonably reliable but only after I resolved a connection/junction issue at the telephone pole at my own cost!
Total rip off for very little benefit in return.

Was ok, we only stayed for the free Lightbox. Now that they've taken that away and offered nothing to compensate we were motivated to move. Looked around and found a better deal with NOW
reliable, Lightbox free
took Lightbox away :-( extra cost for unlimited is unreasonable.

Simply just not sharp enough on their pricing. In the past they would at least price match, but not now. They tried to say that they value added their product with Netflix/Lightbox etc to justify the extra cost. Now that they've sold off Lightbox, paying for the same content through Neon really does just reduce the value of their product that much more!!
It was Ok for speed and reliability.
Just not willing to be price competitive, especially with existing customers.
