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.

Expensive mobile plans compared to others. Broadband OK but when current plan finished the best deal they would do for everything was $60 more than me switching, all they offered was $10 discount to keep me as a customer. Not great customer service!
Pros
Got a good sign up deal
Cons
Weren't interested in giving a halfway reasonable deal for 2 mobiles, broadband and home phone

Basically happy with service but having to be on rural broadband (yet only 400m outside of town boundry) it became very expensive compared to other providers.
Pros
Service mostly reliable
Cons
Can take a long time to book a call back. Also some buffering.

Came to end of our contract and without any messages bumped up the cost.They even have 30/20 internet speed as "standard"and charge to be at the market norm of 100/30.Also failed to offer us their newer plans.
Pros
Can go into a shop and talk to a person.Always had helpful/good service
Cons
As above

Spark has been awful, can take up to a day for call back when the connection is dropping out, they always have to get a technician out I the end, and it's far too pricey

Spark is manipulative and anti-consumer. Shocking service - 2 hour wait on phone, or 1 day wait on callback, then can't understand their accent. The promotion I found on their website was wrong/out of date and the would not honour it.
The new unplan is still over priced and locks you into 12 months for NOTHING! Unplan charges the same for 60gb that others charge for unlimited data!!
Save yourself the disappointment - go elsewhere and stop feeding this dysfunctional corporate beast.
Pros
None
Cons
Called - got a 2 hr wait. Gave up, and was only then offered a callback for a day later. Call was no use. New unplan locks you into 12 months for NOTHING! The promotion I found on their website was wrong/out of date and the would not honour it. Unplan charges the same for 60gb that others charge for unlimited data!! ...read more

Spark Broadband Plans – Price rises and data increases
Spark, one of the big two broadband providers in New Zealand has announced a raft of changes to its broadband plans as it responds to the changing demands of a data hungry nation that New Zealand has become.  There was a press release today that announced Spark has responded to growing demand for data by increasing broadband plan allowances by 50%... however this does also mean a change to some prices.
