Service Overview

Service Description

  1. Unplan is a broadband plan that flexes with you. Based on your usage each month, you’re automatically moved between three price tiers. This means you have the freedom to use more data when you want to, and to save money when you use less data.
  2. With Unplan, you can choose to add a landline. You can also choose to upgrade to Unplan Netflix.
  3. On Unplan over fibre, you can choose the speed of your service (subject to availability):
    • Fibre BASIC
    • Fibre 100
    • Fibre Max

The default speed is normally Fibre 100, depending on your location. If you’d like faster speeds, you can upgrade to alternative fibre speeds. You can view the upload and download speeds of all the options and the pricing that applies to each below or on our broadband plans and pricing schedule. FibreBASIC is not available in Kaipara and Whangarei. View plans and pricing schedule

Availability

  1. Unplan and Unplan Netflix is not available in all areas and eligibility criteria applies. Take a look at the address checker to see what is available to you. Check your address
  2. Unplan over fibre is only offered in areas where the Ultra Fast Broadband network is available.
  3. If you are eligible for Unplan, Spark will select fibre as the most appropriate technology for you to use Unplan based on:
    1. the network technologies available at your address; and
    2. the usage patterns you indicate to us during the setup of the Unplan or Unplan Netflix service at your address.
  4. If either of the factors listed above changes during the term of your agreement, we may change your broadband (at our absolute discretion) to an alternative technology or a new plan.

Service Charge

  1. The monthly price for each type of Unplan over fibre is set out below and on our broadband plans and pricing schedule. View the plans and pricing schedule

Effects on Other Services

  1. Your modem requires mains power. So, if there’s a power cut your broadband service won’t be available and you won’t be able to use it to contact emergency services. Make sure you have a charged mobile phone handy to use in a power cut in case of emergency. If you have existing services you’re planning to use with your broadband connection, you should check with the provider of those services to make sure they’ll work. This could include medical alerts, monitored home alarms, and interactive features of Sky TV.
  2. If you want to make calls from a landline (including 111 calls), you’ll need to sign up for Unplan with a landline. Your landline will run over fibre.
  3. If you’ve ordered Unplan with a landline, it’s possible your existing landline will be disconnected for a few hours when your Unplan connection is set up.

Other Charges

  1. If you choose to have a landline, from the start of your Unplan service all your national and international calls will be provided and invoiced by Spark. Local calls are free. We charge for national, international and mobile calls, but have a range of calling plans to suit most people.
