There is a reason we ask you questions before showing you broadband plans that are available in you area. The key here is availability of services in your area.
If you are on a DSL connection this could be ADSL or VDSL you will have copper cables that carry the data of your internet connection. Not to go all Albert Einstein on you but there are some factors that play a big part in the speed you eventually end up getting at your property.
All broadband services download speeds, including fibre, depend on your connection. And not every fibre plan is created equal. However, fibre is not distance sensitive like our copper based counterpart services ADSL or VDSL, but speeds can vary.
The Ultrafast Fibre Broadband (UFB) network is rolling out through out New Zealand. We repeat fibre is coming to town! And we believe you should start connecting to it right now. "But why should I?", you may ask. Well, read below and you may just find out why…
When choosing a broadband package, there are a lot of variables to consider. Besides cost and data allowances, you also have to consider speed, contract length and what you are using it for. However, out of all of those factors the most important is what kind of user you are. Once you’ve figured this out, you will it much easier to find a broadband plan that suits your needs. Below, we identify some of the most common users and recommend broadband plans that we think most closely match their needs. We will also try to explain broadband download and upload speeds!
Before glimp.co.nz started there were two guys, Michael & Denis, who decided to change their lives. Michael with background in electrical and facilities management and Denis with background in auditing and with only 6 months left in becoming a CA. They both decided to quit their jobs around June 2015 and attended an 18 week programming course. After the course, glimp has been born.
