Frequently Asked Questions
How fast is ADSL broadband?
ADSL broadband has been the standard in NZ for a long time and, depending on the quality of your lines, gives download speeds of up to 24Mbps and upload speeds of 1Mbps. The national average is about 10Mbps download and 1Mbps upload. This is plenty for the basics like emailing, surfing the net and checking social networks.
How much faster is VDSL broadband?
Heaps faster than ADSL! Depending on your line quality, you could get download speeds of up to 70Mbps and upload speeds up to 10Mbps. There are several factors involved such as the condition of the copper cables and the distance from the nearest cabinet. The closer you are to the cabinet – the better.
It’s easy to compare broadband plans for VDSL here at glimp.
Should I choose VDSL or Ultra Fast Fibre? (Ultra Fast Broadband)
Even if you can get both at your address, your best choice is fibre. It uses fibre optic cabling instead of copper which means the speeds are more consistent and faster. Fibre broadband is a little trickier to install than VDSL, but it’s worth it.
How fast are the Ultra Fibre plans?
With Ultra Fibre 30, the service can deliver Fibre speeds up to 30mbps downstream and 10mbps upstream. Ultra Fibre 100 can deliver Fibre speeds up to 100mbps downstream and 20mbps upstream. Ultra Fibre 200 can provide 200Mbps downstream and 20Mbps upstream. Ultra Fibre Gigatown can provide an amazing 1000Mbps downstream and 500Mbps upstream (only available in Dunedin).
Actual speeds for fibre will be affected by various factors including NZ and overseas networks, your modem and computer technology, internal home wiring and other environmental factors.
Wondering which provider can give you the fastest speeds? Compare broadband speeds in your area using our services at glimp.
Standard Fibre Installation
The standard fibre installation should suit most New Zealand homes. It requires a technician from your Local Fibre Company to carry out work at your house. They will make sure you understand what's required and won't start any work unless you're happy with what's proposed.
It includes all the work needed to connect your home to the fibre running down the street:
Installing the fibre cable from the street through to your home (up to 200m of cabling from the roadside curb to house). Installing and connecting the necessary equipment outside (the ETP) and inside (the ONT) your home. Making sure the fibre service is running and disconnecting the copper broadband connection to your home. Your Local Fibre Company staff will do their best to minimise any impact on grassed areas and if hard surfaces are affected, they will be resealed.
You'll need this if your house is more than 200m from the Fibre access point on the street. Or if you decide to install your fibre modem in a different place from the ONT and need additional wiring as a result.
The Local Fibre Company staff will let you know if your place needs a non-standard installation and what that's likely to cost before they start any work. It is recommended that you compare broadband providers first to see if they offer free installation.
Getting the installation work done
You may need to allow a full day for the work to be done and you'll also need to be available on-site as the installation team will be working both inside and outside of your home.
Don't worry though. The installation team will make sure you understand what's required and they won't start any work unless you are happy with what's being proposed.

Easiest service to use and knowledgeable and experienced staff. Made switching power and broadband stress free! Thanks Jamie S, they answered all my questions I had about starting a new connection for broadband and power - even better than calling Slingshot direct as I got 3 months free internet and credit for using my own modem :)
Virtually instant contact after filling out online form. Great rep - friendly and informative, great deal made for cheaper power, overall so far so good 😁
