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.

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.

Okay company to deal with however, sometimes you didn't receive what you asked for and would have to follow up only to have Spark not backdate the request or fees (if it was their fault). They gave no incentive to stay when I came off contract, but seemed indifferent so I looked elsewhere and found someone who actually WANTED the customer's business.
Reliable when needing an answer.
No incentives to stay, limited plans (they've changed all fibre plans to UNPLAN and that's it). Indifferent attitude towards the customer.

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.
