Check out these Glimp reviews from some of our happy customers :

Choosing the best Internet service in Christchurch for your family or business can be so easy. Glimp ensures that there are many service providers and even more deals within each provider.  

Here are the main providers for broadband in Christchurch:

  • Stuff Fibre
  • Bigpipe 
  • MyRepublic 
  • Spark 
  • Compass 
  • Slingshot 
  • Vodafone
  • 2 Degrees
  • Flip

Here are the main power company providers in Christchurch: 

  • Nova Energy
  • Energy Online 
  • Meridian 
  • Contact 
  • Trust Power 
  • Powershop
  • Pulse Energy 
  • Mercury Energy 
  • Genesis Energy
  • Flick 

Each of these providers and companies have positive and negatives aspects. When exploring broadband provider options, there are many factors to consider. 

Slingshot, for example, offers prices that are comparable to other providers, but they don't offer a no-contract option. To make up for this, they provide free Chromecast streaming. 

Similarly, Vodafone and 2 Degrees providers offer good price and speed options while giving the customer the option of not being locked into a contract but they do not offer Chromecast streaming for free. 

In comparison, we know right away that Stuff Fibre is generally the most affordable option and is very flexible because it offers a 30-day, money back guarantee. However, it is not offered in every neighborhood or for all kinds of streaming needs (light-extreme usage). 

Some options offer one year contracts and some offer two years, the benefit to a longer contract being saving money. Many offer free installation of the service but charge for the internet, modem, or the other way around. Since there are so many different combinations of services and plans, the most important things to do is use Glimp for yourself and compare your options. 

You may also not know exactly what you want from your broadband provider yet. Even that is okay with Glimp’s incredibly simple service. You can play with your options and get a better idea of exactly what you can afford in your service, how flexible you want your contract to be, and what sorts of speeds you might require. 

The beauty of Glimp is the flexibility to compare. Just ask Janet from Governors Bay:

“Your service was very useful to me as it allowed me to compare the different options and to make an informed decision about which Broadband and phone services would be the most useful (and cost-effective) for me.” 

For the best power prices Christchurch offers for your budget, look no further than Glimp’s easy to compare platform to view your options: 

Searching for the best power prices Christchurch broadband power providers can give you according to your budget can leave you struggling to make the right decision on your own. With so many options and such an important, expensive decision, you wouldn’t want to make the wrong choice and wind up paying for a service you cannot afford. What’s worse, choosing the wrong broadband plan could leave you locked into a lengthy contract with the only way out being a costly cancellation fee. 

The good people at Glimp understand this and have made it easy to avoid falling into this trap. By allowing you to filter your options based on price, among other filters, you can ensure your plan is the caliber you paid for, at a price you can afford. 

To find the best Internet at a speed you can afford, Glimp has filters specifically for that: 

Filters such as fibre, adsl and vdsl let you select the speed you need for your specific streaming needs. Within each filter, you can determine the exact price that fits that budget. 

Fibre network provides fast and affordable broadband service to you and your home or business by using fibre optic cables to deliver your data, rather than through traditional copper wires. Fibre broadband services are not affected by distance, ensuring a consistent broadband connection and speed no matter how far away your home or business is from the broadband signal. You can also connect multiple devices with no affect on the quality of the fibre speed. While it may take longer to install fibre broadband systems because it is a newer technology, it promises to be worth the wait. 

Vdsl stands for Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line. It is the fastest copper broadband delivery you can purchase, significantly faster than Adsl services. The drawback is that you need to be located within 1200m of the broadband signal in order to get adequate broadband service. However, with Internet in New Zealand growing exponentially each year, about 2/3 of houses are within this range of capable Vdsl reach. If you cannot get fibre broadband to your home or business but still need very fast Internet, Vdsl is your next best option. 

Lastly, Adsl broadband plans, the most commonly used plan in New Zealand, to date. Adsl splits into two types of speed - ADSL2+ and ADSL. ADSL2+ can deliver broadband speeds of up to 24Mbps to properties located within just a short 2km radius from a broadband cabinet. ADSL is the slowest broadband connection available on the copper network and will fast become the service of the past. With ADSL, you will receive speeds around 2Mbps, for distances of up to 6km from the broadband cabinet. Other drawbacks to Adsl are that both ADSL2+ and ADSL are affected by how far away you are from the broadband signal, the number of devices you are using, the quality and the age of your modem and your wiring. So why would you chose Adsl? Probably only if you are a very light Internet user or cannot afford another plan. 

Glimp can help you review all plans, quicker than it took you to read this content. 

Brian from Blenheim says “I found the Glimp team great, have switched to fast fibre and everything seems to be working well. Thanks again for the ease in doing that”
