Broadband providers: who is the BEST?

Broadband providers. We know who is the biggest… but who is the BEST?

With over 100 broadband providers across New Zealand how do you differentiate which provider is the best? Well you won’t have to wait long to find out. The finalists for the 2019 Broadband Compare TUANZ Awards have been announced today. The awards celebrate the very best of the broadband industry, recognising the companies that provide New Zealanders with the very best products and services in the broadband sector.

Now in its third year, the Broadband Compare TUANZ Awards continue to go from strength to strength. Gavin Male, founder and CEO of NZ Compare says "We were delighted by the record number of entries for this year’s awards, representing a wide range of brands and companies. As always, the level of competition has been intense. Our judging panel were impressed by the quality of entrants and selecting the winners from these finalists will be a tough task!"

Male continues, "It is fantastic to see such a diverse range of finalists recognised and highlights what a great position connectivity in New Zealand is in. At NZ Compare we are passionate about helping our customers make a fully informed choice when choosing a broadband provider. And, with increasing competition and a greater diversity of products available, there can be more confusion than ever about which provider to choose. The awards play an important part in helping broadband customers recognise the best of the best."

Entries to the awards came from a wide range of broadband provider in 2019 - from large national players like 2degrees, Vodafone, Stuff Fibre, NOW, Orcon and Slingshot to specialist providers like Farmside, Network for Learning and Primo Wireless.

In closing, Male added, "The companies that enter the awards exemplify some great qualities and should be commended for their achievements. It’s brilliant to see such a great cross section of organisations shortlisted for the big night and congratulations to all the companies that entered and made the finals."
