Farmside want to make that connection as effortless as possible. They have extensive coverage of rural areas thanks to the RBI (Rural Broadband Initiative) and compared to other internet providers in NZ, their rural broadband is often superior.

They use their insight into living rurally and want to do whatever they can to make everything as easy as possible for you. Even if you live somewhere like the Chathams or Haast, Farmside have specific plans for you so that you aren’t left in the lurch. Or if you live in one of the South Islands major centers there are plans for you, even one with a fibre connection.

Types of Farmside broadband plans

Farmside ADSL Broadband Plans

If you have a close enough connection to an existing copper wire network, then you’ll have an opportunity to secure an ADSL connection. ADSL makes for a consistent and steady internet stream. Great if you want easy access without putting much pressure on your connection. If you want high quality video streaming or online gaming, you’ll want to see if you can get a VDSL connection.

Farmside Naked Broadband Plans

Homelines are becoming less and less common, even in rural areas. So if you think your landline is redundant, Farmside make it easy for you to pick a plan that doesn’t come with a landline. That way you won’t be paying for something that you don’t actually use.

Farmside Landline Broadband Plans

Despite the decline in popularity of landlines, Farmside NZ still keep it very easy to pick plans that still come with a landline. For an additional $10 per month, you can add a homeline with a single click. If you’re going to need unlimited national calling you can get that for just an extra $10 per month too.

Farmside Unlimited Broadband Plans

If you have a large household, or simply rely on an internet connection for work, then you’ll want to get onto one of the Farmside unlimited plans. A data cap can be debilitating if you run out of internet before the end of the month, so avoid those moments and forget about the worry of using the right amount of data with an unlimited plan.

Farmside VDSL Broadband Plans

If you have the opportunity to get a copper connection, you should definitely go for VDSL. At twice the speed of ADSL, VDSL is better suited to the modern internet of high quality streaming and gaming. It’s still not quite the speed of fibre, but it can still handle some heavy usage.

Farmside Rural Broadband Plans

If you’re aren’t living within the vicinity of a copper wire connection, then Farmside broadband have your back with their Wireless Rural Broadband plans. With all kinds of 3g and 4g options for connection, they can secure your internet. They have a map on their website so you can see exactly where they provide and can compare rural broadband to other providers.

Thanks so much for your help. I hope the service from my new provider will be as painless as your service of finding the best deals in town. Super fast and links actually works! Cheers

Used this to compare mobile offerings in NZ - it was useful, though it would be better if it had better filters so that you could specify the range of features you wanted (e.g. rollover of both types, minimum xx GB, xx mins per month). Without these parameters you have to manually read through them all, though it was laid out neatly enough that this still wasn't super hard.
