The Unplan

Spark Broadband

Depending on the technology available at your place, choose between Spark’s Flexible Broadband or an Unlimited Broadband plan.
With Flexible Broadband, you pay less when you use less. It’s New Zealand’s first ever internet plan that automatically moves between three price tiers. So, each month, just use the data you need and settle up when your bill comes through. If Fibre or Wireless are unavailable, Unlimited Broadband is the option for you.

What is naked vs landline broadband?

Naked is broadband only. You don't get a landline or phone number with naked broadband. If you have a monitored alarm, medical alarm, fax, or order pay per view movies, these services may no longer work without a landline. If you need those services, naked broadband will not be for you.

How many devices can I connect to my Spark modem?

You can connect as many devices, such as computers, tablets, laptops and smartphones, as you want to your modem. Certain devices may use different technologies which will affect the speed. For instance an older device with a slower processor will be slower than a newer device. What you are actually doing on the device will also affect the speed. The more devices you have using your connection at the same time, the harder the modem works to deliver broadband.

How fast is ADSL Broadband?

ADSL Broadband has been the standard in New Zealand for a long time and, depending on the quality of your lines, gives download speeds of up to 24Mbps and upload speeds of 1Mbps. The national average is about 10Mbps download and 1Mbps upload. This should be plenty for the basics like emailing, browsing the internet and checking social networks.

How much faster is VDSL Broadband?

It's a lot faster than ADSL. Depending on your line quality, you could get download speeds of up to 70Mbps and upload speeds up to 10Mbps. There are a number of factors involved such as the condition of the copper cables and the distance from the nearest cabinet. The closer you are to the cabinet the better.
