Trustpower Internet Plans

Best Bundled Plan 2018

Back in 2007, Trustpower Phone & Internet (then known as Kinect), began providing phone services to residential customers. The same year, we began offering services over ADSL to residential and business customers.

In 2010, we successfully implemented an ISP network and began providing internet services directly to our customers. As is the case today, our service was supported by Trustpower’s strong wholesale relationships with network companies.

In 2011, the Government committed $1.35 billion to build an Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) network throughout New Zealand. We soon started planning to offer UFB to customers and connected our first ultra fast broadband customer in August 2012. Today, we provide over 500 customers with phone and internet services over UFB. Internet speeds range from 30 megabits to 100 megabits per second.

In 2013 we had 27,500 telecommunications customers. Over 16,000 of them were with us for their broadband service, and the number continues to grow.

As always, we strive to offer our customers quality service. We are also committed to ongoing innovation and excellence across the telecommunications sector. Trustpower is a member of the Telecom Carriers Forum (TCF).

The modem they supplied was totally useless and dropouts were basically daily or at best weekly. I bought my own and dropouts ceased immediately, proving the problem. However, every so often I'd be offline for a few hours and support never could explain why. This unreliability and slow internet were my reasons for changing.
Pros
It was cheap under their power and broadband bundle, so I saved money.
Cons
Too unreliable.
Too slow.

I did not feel the support needed after reporting a fault with my landine and internet. Left without phone line and internet for a week and no help forthcoming. I asked for a technician to come and check but was told to find one myself as theirs would be expensive. Time to find a new provider who listens and helps promptly.
Pros
Having power included in one account
Cons
No genuine support shown a week after fault has been reported. No internet and land line.

Overall Trustpower is a good ISP. If they spread out their servers they will be a great ISP. The fact that you get a good deal on power and internet access (the two main utilities not provided by council) in one bill is a unique feature.
Pros
In comparison to Spark, this company has excellent customer service. The added feature of combining your power and internet bills into one is nice and convenient.
Cons
I signed up for 100Mb per second. I don't receive that. The majority of the speed tests I get are around 16Mb. Upload is fine at 30Mb but the downloads is where its at. Spark did provide a minimum of 80Mb/s and a ping of 4ms. Now I have a ping of 36ms. I have since learned that Trustpower is in the Hamilton and do not have servers outside of that area. If they do not bring servers to Christchurch once my term contract has expired I will switch again. ...read more
