We recently released our new and improved Broadband filter in NZ. This is to ensure fast and tailored results for every Kiwi in need of a better internet plan.

But just how fast is fast?

First, let's get back to the basics.

You know how taxing it is, just looking for the right broadband plan, right? Sure, there are heaps of options from NZ's internet service providers, but it can still get confusing. I mean, there's just way too many offers, promos, and bundles. How do you know which one is right for you?

These days, you can easily search for the best plans with the help of a free comparison website. Results are tailored based on what you're looking for, and you can easily go through the offers. No more manually comparing deals, and asking your neighbours and friends.

Forget about opening multiple tabs, hidden charges, and awkward small talks (thank god).

Tailored results

You get heaps of filter features, so you're sure you're getting the best, most personalized results. What makes glimp's comparison tool even better is its latest broadband filter features, making it the fastest and most optimal way to search for the best Broadband plans.


Bundling means combining your broadband plan with one or more household utilities. This is a good option if you want the convenience of getting all your utilities from one provider. It's fuss-free as you get to pay your bills in one go.

What's more, bundling can save you more money as some providers give discounts and promos if you get more services from them.

Choose to bundle your broadband with either a landline, power, mobile, and/or a TV. You could get lucky and have the first month free, or get an exclusive discount.

Some of these promos are exclusive when you switch with glimp's comparison tool!

Fibre, GigFibre, ADSL, or VDSL

There are heaps of Broadband types to choose from, depending on your needs. It can get frustrating to find a good broadband plan, only to find out they're not available where you live.

This filter lets you see which types of Broadband are available at your address.

It's time to choose

Once you’ve been provided with the best plans, you can be more specific with what you want, and filter the results further!

You'll be given the recommended options, but you can also choose Lowest Cost to see your cheapest options first, or the Faster Provider, to filter those that can give you the fastest Broadband plan.

No contract and inclusions

Aside from the type of Broadband and price, there are other factors to consider before picking the right one. This includes how long you want to be on the plan, whether it comes with a free modem, and exclusive offers.

This filter allows you to find plans that currently have offers, plans with free modem, or plans with no contract, if you don’t want to commit to a long-term plan just yet.

Make it a habit to compare your options so you can make better-informed decisions, not just for your broadband needs but for other utilities, too. Being in the wrong plan could cost you a lot of money and stress.

Comparing plans should be fast, easy, and did we mention it’s FREE? 

Find the best broadband deals for you in just a few minutes. Snag exclusive deals, right here at glimp!

Sign up didn't go quite the way it was meant to. But Kate called and she walked through everything so we could work out what went wrong. she was patient, friendly, supportive and kept me calm to finally get plan registration sorted ( still can't log in though - she must be magic )

Easy site to navigate. Gave me great options that suit my household including reputable providers I wasn't familiar with.

I’ve just had a great experience with Kurt from glimp compare. He helped me through the process from the time I clicked onto the website, via the chat function. Long story short I have signed up to a new power and broadband provider with significant cost savings. There was no pressure at any stage, just respectful guidance and facilitation to initiate the new supply.

Good options, but ideally an option to combine & compare cost for best mobile + broadband option would be nice.
