“That’s it. I’m moving to New Zealand.”
 

Tourists, Brits, Americans -- all sorts may have muttered this to themselves at some point, and why wouldn’t they? 


New Zealand offers beautiful landscapes in a peaceful country with friendly people and a relaxed way of life.  Auckland consistently ranks as one of the world’s best cities to live in. Wellington is considered “the coolest little capital of the world”. And for those who prefer a quieter life, there’s sure to be a small town on the coast, in the wine regions or up in the mountains to strike your fancy.
 

Perhaps you’re a bit more interested in making such a move happen. You may have even visited Immigration New Zealand’s website to see if you qualify for a visa. But have you determined how much it will be to actually live in New Zealand?  What will it cost to keep your lights on? And how much will fast internet access be? 
 

For electricity, New Zealand’s Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment found that the average household spent just over $2,000 NZD a year. That’s roughly $167 a month. Home broadband access costs will likely be slightly higher when compared to the rates of other OECD countries -- but internet speeds continue to improve and more and more Kiwis are able to access super-fast fibre connections . 
 

The amount of money you could spend on electricity and internet depends on where you plan to live, the size of your household, and how much energy or data you plan to use. Luckily, there’s many internet and power companies who offer competitive rates, providing great value.
 

Many people dream of moving to New Zealand. Just this little bit of information could make that dream even more clear!

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 )

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.

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