At Broadband Compare, we believe that broadband is an increasingly essential service and a better internet experience is vital to everybody’s future so be sure to compare internet providers NZ today.
Fibre Broadband is the best available technology to improve the broadband and internet experience for everyone. It can deliver large amounts of data further and faster than the alternatives and will provide a powerful platform for innovation and growth.
The Broadband Compare ethos is set around finding you the best broadband plan for your needs whilst educating around the benefits of fibre broadband and driving adoption of fibre broadband as it is rolled out across New Zealand.
New Zealand’s Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) initiative is one of the most radical and pioneering internet upgrades anywhere in the world and this once-in-a-lifetime infrastructure upgrade is all about the success of NZ – helping Kiwi communities, people and businesses thrive with access to faster broadband. The NZ$1.35 billion public-private UFB partnership will roll out fibre-to-the-home connection in all main towns and cities with a population over 10,000. The project is well underway and as of December 2016 is 70% complete (with 21 towns/cities having their UFB build completed – details below) and uptake is already at around 30%.
Faster, more consistent broadband speeds will help people and businesses use the Internet to be more efficient and effective. It will help families and communities connect to each other and to society and it will help our Kiwi businesses get products and services to the rest of the country, and the rest of the world from our little corner of paradise here in New Zealand.
There are currently 21 areas of NZ that are fully fibre internet ready. These areas are Whangarei, Te Awamutu, Oamaru, Cambridge, Tokoroa, Hawera, Ashburton, Blenheim, Whanganui, Taupō, Timaru, Greymouth, Masterton, New Plymouth, Hamilton, Tauranga, Waiuku, Rotorua, Queenstown, Whakatane and most recently, Waiheke Island.
There are more and more fibre areas being completed in NZ all the time including finalising the fibre rollout in major cities like Auckland, Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington. You can still drop your address in to our ‘can I get fibre’ tool that will state your best current internet connection and allow you to compare NZ ISP’s and let you compare internet providers in NZ.
