What is the Broadband Compare rating?

Friday, 1 July 2016

We are often asked 'what is the best broadband plan in New Zealand?' and this varies according to user and requirements, however you can view our 'default' rankings for the best fibre broadband plans, the best ADSL broadband plans and the cheapest broadband plans from across all of the New Zealand broadband providers by searching with no address in the address input field.  

This will showcase the default rankings based on the core plan details without overlaying the individual householder requirements or connection type.  Querying the Broadband Compare database in this way will compare all the plans across the country whther they are available at your address or not.   For example, you can query all plans with a free router or all plans with no contract but we will not know the available connection type at your property and so this ranking will order results based on the best plan for a particular set of requirements whether they are available to you or not.

The Broadband Compare rating is designed to be bespoke for each address and user in New Zealand that compares broadband plans through the Broadband Compare website.  Our technology matches your broadband usage requirements and determines the suitability of different broadband plans based on a range of factors that you set.  These include the available connection types (Fibre, VDSL, ADSL), anticipated data usage, broadband speed requirements, contract length, price, landline requirements, modem needs and any special promotions or value adds. 

As a simple summary, the higher the Broadband Compare rating the better suited we think that plan is to your needs.  This means your top rated recommendation won't always be the cheapest plan available.  For example, if you are a keen online gamer you need fast speeds with a high upload speed and unlimited data.  Your next door neighbour might only use the internet for social media and checking email so their requirements are completely different and as such the Broadband Compare rating will recommend different plans for the two of you.

All in all there are more than 2 million different permutations that are queried each time a user sits down and types their requirements into the Broadband Compare website.
