The New Year is the most popular time for Kiwis to make resolutions for the year ahead. One of the most common goals people set is to manage their budgeting and finances better. When it comes to reviewing budgeting for utility expenses, broadband, water and electricity are often top of the list.

 Broadband expenses are something that people generally overlook; they sign up to a plan once they move into a new place, and don’t put much thought to it after that. Many are unaware that this expense can easily be lowered, to the point of saving hundreds of dollars each year. This can be done by comparing your current broadband plan to other internet deals from New Zealand’s top broadband providers.

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 )

Found it really easy to find what i needed and also got a call regarding what deals might be best suited etc. Saves a lot of time. Highly reccommend glimp

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.

John de Jong , 2021-09-26

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