Spark broadband gets even more naked

Spark broadband gets even more naked

Naked VDSL and ADSL plans available on Spark Network without Ultra Mobile bundle

Spark is offering its Ultra Broadband customers more choice and more value from today, with the launch of “standalone” Naked VDSL and ADSL plans, which mean customers can buy broadband without it being wrapped into a home phone or mobile package. The new Naked plans start from $65 per month on ADSL and $75 on VDSL for an 80GB plan.

Spark Home, Mobile & Business Chief Executive Chris Quin says: “We know that a growing proportion of people don't use landlines for calling and instead prefer mobile, Skype and Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family.

“A number of our customers have been in touch over social media and through our Spark Should platform to say they want to buy broadband, but they don’t want a landline and don’t necessarily want to package it up with a mobile. We’ve listened, and have put in place plans to suit their lifestyle.

“We know Naked Broadband isn’t for everybody as a lot of our customers still prefer the ease and convenience of a home phone, but it gives people another option – and allows them to save a few dollars each month.”
