Wasn't a very good start when we joined them in 2017. My wife and I tried getting in touch with them which was annoying especially when we only wanted to get connected. We join them because they had good reviews on Canstar. Well I think that this site is not independent because the level of customer and product service has been the worst. Orcon were bad but I would go back to them rather than flip. That is why we left them this year and are now with skinny broadband. Their plans are good and so far no problems. ...read more
Pros
Went to Skinny Broadband
Cons
Customer service is very hard to get a hold of. And had to reset the modem on many occasions.

Trustpower fibre broadband (30/10) has been fine, no real issues
Pros
No dramas most of the time
Cons
There was a misunderstanding when we first connected, but we got past that (weird timing with signing up vs. getting fibre down the street). I also felt like there was a weird latency during our first 6 months which I could never quite pin down. But for the past 2-3 years it's been great ...read more

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

Vodafone was reliable enough, there was a time when it was impossible to get technical support but they've improved. My new deal seems to pretty good compared with the offers from Vodaphone.
Pros
Hmmm
Cons
pricey

Okay if you want the absolute basics, but support was patchy, no support to talk to at weekends, and they don't let you BYO router/modem.

Good internet overall, quick tech support when needed help.
Pros
Had 6month discount via Broadband compare.
Cons
Discount post 12months, they attempted a discount but was not as competitive as Slingshot.

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 The promotion I found on their website was wrong/out of date and the would not honour it.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

The service has always worked well. Some days there is slow internet or the internet will time out, but the service has been reliable and valuable.
Pros
It has good speed, reliablilty and the comapny is well known
Cons
The price is standard and does not stand out as being a great deal.
