Standardized and reduced prices across all broadband

December 18, 2013, Auckland

Voyager introduces standardized and reduced prices across all broadband products.

With Chorus likely to drop the price of wholesale broadband connections to all retail ISPs by approximately $10/mth in December 2014, Voyager has taken the opportunity to pre-empt the market and drop the price of their broadband services now.

In addition, Voyager is implementing a new standardised base fee of just $69 + gst across all naked ADSL, VDSL and UFB broadband services. With all Voyager’s entry level broadband products now the same price, Voyager’s focus is simply to deliver the fastest possible connection option to every customer.

Along with the base fee reduction and standardization, Voyager has also significantly increased data caps on most plans whilst keeping them at their original price.

Voyager CEO Seeby Woodhouse said, “The standardised base fee across our broadband offerings means that customers don’t have to weigh trade-offs between prices and service types when choosing an Internet package. Customers simply decide how much data they need, and we deliver the fastest service possible at that address for the same low price, whether residential or commercial”.

Below is a table outlining the changes to Voyager’s broadband plans:

*The only exception to the price reductions in broadband services is that the price of our Clothed ADSL product will in fact increase by $4/mth due to the increased costs in this area. Less than 5% of our customers are on Clothed ADSL, so this will not affect the majority of our customers.
