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.

I have used spark broadband with homeline for over 10 years. In the past, they have been able to offer discounted rates to existing customers when there were promotions for new customers. Unfortunately, this was not the case any more in the last couple of years and their contact centre or sales department stuffed up with a change I already said no to. This created unnecessary hussle for me. Besides, I feel the price is quite high compared with some other good providers.
Quite reliable, seldomly had issues. Overall customer service staff had been good.
Getting more and more expensive.

A good service but they have been dominant for too long. and now others providers are offering just as good or better services at a cheaper price...and they try harder.
Good speed, reliability, service. Nice cheap international calls with 0161
Expensive. Not good value for money. Not making any efforts to keep customers.
