Online entertainment boom makes more people switch to the fastest available broadband connection — fibre. Streaming services like Netflix, YouTube, TV3 on Demand and TVNZ OnDemand, as well as the recently launched Vodafone TV, resulted in a better online experience. However, it also requires a faster connection. That’s why, according to New Zealand’s Statistics 67% more people are now connected to fibre, compared to last year. The demand is ever increasing. But why bother? Let’s talk about why you should switch.
For those who rent a house/apartment, it’s easy to see the value of a faster, more reliable broadband connection. As for landlords, the benefits might not be that obvious to them. But there’s a great value of installing fibre in your house, like the increased value of the property, or better chances to attract new tenants.
Here are some of the benefits of switching to fibre:
Your download/upload speeds will be consistent, and you’ll forget about buffering no matter the time of the day.
Multiple internet users can simultaneously stream, browse, download, play games without experiencing any discomfort
You’ll note the difference in the time it usually takes to download or upload something. Fibre offers the top speeds compared to its ADSL/VDSL predecessors.
Most broadband providers offer a free standard installation when signing on their fibre deals. Check all of the available deals at Broadband Compare
*in case your house is more than 200m away from the on-street fibre access point, or the extra work is required for your address, there might be the additional installation cost (fees depend on broadband providers)
A much faster, more reliable, and overall better broadband connection must be more expensive. However, that’s not the case. Most providers offer fibre deals that cost nearly the same as ADSL/VDSL plans.
So, what are the downsides of switching to fibre, you may ask? Essentially, there’s only one — its availability and the time it takes to connect you to the fibre network.
