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.

After being a Spark Customer for nearly 30 years now, I was very disappointed when I was billed for my landline calls recently for no apparent reason and an extra charge of $5.00 was on top of that. After my query I was told that the free national landline calls were "a promotional add on" that I received at the beginning of my new contract which has now run out and the $5 was added for increased copper line maintenance cost. Fibre isn't available in my area yet. Although I knew about far more competetive deals offered by other providers I stayed loyal with Spark but am now seriously looking at other options because they seem to be very inflexible with their plans and unwilling to value me as a customer. ...read more
Reputable Company with reasonably good service
Inflexible plans and far too expensive compared to other ISP
No landline deals available at the moment

Hopeless direct support. Appears from Skinny's pricing well overpriced.

Had been with Spark for 25yrs... No More... Never Again!!!
Now a happy new MyRepublic customer
Transferring across from Spark to MyRepublic for their Fast Fibre & phone line was extremely easy to organise and they were knowledgeable, personable, prompt and efficient . (Top Marks)
MyRepublic had an awesomely priced 12mth special joining offer that was just to good to ignore...
Don't put up with those Spark muppets 1 minute longer... Nike principle... Just do it.
... Ummmm
Still thinking on that one...
No, you got me stumped
Couldn't come up with even one Pro for them
It's official... Spark totally sucks
Their reliability totally sucks... lost broadband & phone connection for 2-days at a time 5 times in the last 2-years!!!
Their VDSL speed performance is pitiful and erratic... 26Mbps up... 2.5Mbps down
Overpriced... despite their standard price having decreased by 50%... I was still being billed the original 50% higher price 3 years later
Just transferred my personal business and all 3 of my nationwide businesses custom away from Spark... today
Just a new business mobile provider left to source
Spark seriously sucks... I wouldn't now give them the steam off my excrement... Worst of the worst!!!
