Is this the cheapest unlimited broadband deal in NZ?


As the price of petrol hits record highs in NZ - the cost of living feels more expensive than ever. Fuel, rent, insurance, rates, electricity and food costs are all increasing. And with Christmas fast approaching and the long summer holiday coming up, Kiwis need to save every cent they can!

That’s why Broadband Compare and MyRepublic have teamed up to bring some great news to the Kiwi consumer - an exclusive, limited time of-fer to get the cheapest unlimited fibre broadband deal in New Zealand. At just $59.99 per month.

Gavin Male, CEO and Co-Founder of Broadband Compare says, "As we head into the Christmas period we know that money can feel tighter than ever. That’s why Broadband Compare have worked with one of our top partners - My Republic - to make things a little easier. As we launch, this deal is the cheapest monthly rate Kiwi’s will pay for unlimited fibre broadband in NZ. Its super simple, fast, unlimited fibre broadband at a great monthly price. "

Male continues, "With most Kiwis still paying more than $90 per month for their broadband, this exclusive deal is a real game-changer and could easily save a whole lot of consumers more than $400 in the year."

The offering keeps things simple - sign up for a 12 month term and pay just $59.99 per month. Receive un-limited fibre broadband with download speeds of 100Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20Mbps. With free router rental included, there's no need to worry about connection fees, or cheap introductory periods run-ning out. This is 12 months at $59.99.



Broadband Compare’s consumer insight and market information report, Broadband Pulse, gives a unique insight into the motivations of those who are switching broadband plans. The most important factors cus-tomers look for when switching plans is monthly cost, amount of data and speed. This package delivers on all those factors offering a low monthly rate, unlimited data, and the ultra-fast speed of fibre broadband.

Male says, "Fibre is the most popular new plan for consumers to switch to for a reason. It is much more advanced and efficient than the copper technology of last century. If you live in a home with multiple users streaming movies and games, and accessing content at the same time, Ultra-Fast Broadband will handle just about anything you can throw at it."

The government’s Broadband Deployment Update reveals great news for the future of Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) with 87% of New Zealanders able to access fibre by the end of 2022.

Male says, "As Fibre rolls out across NZ, more homes than ever have access. Currently 44.1% of users who could access Fibre are connected. That means 55.9% of people who could sign up to Fibre haven’t yet - that’s over 765,000 people missing out! If you think Fibre isn’t available in your area, it’s worth checking again as new connections roll out across the country all the time. It’s free and easy to check your address at www.broadbandcompare.co.nz and start saving today!"
