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.

We all know how confusing it is that ISPs advertise the same speeds... but are their speeds actually the same? According to the latest ADSL Truenet.nz report, the speed differences for NZ websites continue to show a wide spread on ADSL providers.
Looking for a VDSL connection? Make sure you are on the best VDSL connection delivering the best VDSL speeds for your money. Read all about the performance of VDSL internet providers in NZ.
News just breaking in the broadband world that four companies have received warnings from the Commerce Commission as they are considered to have breached the Fair Trading Act.
Internet providers in New Zealand offer different connection options to broadband subscribers. These different broadband options are ADSL, VDSL, Cable, Fibre, and now Fixed Wireless.

Very slow internet at times, even though we are on fibre at 200. Pay too much for it. No help from faults service.

open term, easy to move addresses

The fibre install was fairly efficient. I had to insist on it being put underground. We had one outage when another customer was being connected, and I wonder if the overhead cables along the street will survive in a big storm
Quite expensive once the introductory discounts expired

JuJust go to Spark in thames if you want totally incompetent staff. And dont worry its not their fault theyll just put it on your account
Margaret Mortimer24th October 2017
We are not IT savvy and don't run into too many problems. We do think we pay way too much per month

Do not recommend. Have has Spark Wireless Broadband for well over a year. Was not any faster than copper (altho this was it's selling point). The landline continually cut out during conversations so we got rid of that thinking it might help. It didn't. Other people have also complained of this happening. Spark seemed unable to help with that problem. There is a limit of 120 GB per month and at $10 for 10GB for extra it is very expensive. Had enough and am looking at going back to copper
Does not need a wire to the house
Useless. Do not recommend. I do not understand why Spark keep on pushing Wireless Broadband so heavily
PETER LIOW21st October 2017
Spark provided shocking customer service - very hard to get through to resolve connection issue and stung with fee for diagnosis report but had to make numerous attempts to get verbal understanding of report. Very poor service and exorbitant cost.
Leenke Heunis20th October 2017
Constant issues with months without internet costing huge amounts of money for data on mobile
ALWAYS claiming issues are inside the house and always finding it to be outside after techie comes after weeks of efforts on my side
Easy to fall into the habit if Trustpower is your provider
Easy to use way too much extra data as limitless data never works two days running
Hidden costs galore pushing accounts sky high
