Are you experiencing slower speeds than what you’re actually paying for? How about intermittent, unreliable internet service? Perhaps, you receive signals just fine in your living room but not in the kitchen or your room? It may be because your broadband plan is outdated!
An outdated broadband deal with outdated router tech is the perfect recipe for slow and unreliable internet connections. What’s more, you may be missing out on some exclusive perks and promos available at your address! Your neighbours may be getting better value for money while you’re paying the same amount.
Here’s a quick list of the newest broadband deals and promos offered by the leading providers in New Zealand. But before we proceed, it's important you note the following:
Business and home broadband plans used to be separate offerings by Orcon. Traditionally, businesses need faster speeds and larger bandwidth because their tasks are more demanding. However, the line between residential and commercial use isn’t as clear as day.
Nowadays, most households also need fast and stable broadband because residents have more demanding tasks such as video conferencing, uploading files on the cloud, and streaming series in 4K resolution. That’s why Orcon offers a $15 ‘bolt-on’ to make your regular fibre broadband plan business-grade.
Getting a business-grade service doesn’t mean a speed upgrade. It simply means you’re prioritised by technicians and customer service agents if ever you experience interruptions or delays in your internet service, just like you would when you have business broadband.
