Telecom New Zealand Announces Faster Broadband & Lower Prices
Posted on 13-Feb-2006 22:06 by Tony Hughes. | Tags Filed under: News.



New Zealand's incumbent ADSL provider, Telecom New Zealand, has announced lower broadband pricing for business. In some cases, business DSL prices will drop from NZ$900 to NZ$100. The new pricing was co-announced with new plans & speeds, including long awaited faster upload speeds (up to 512Kbps – previously 128Kbps), and faster download speeds as well (up to 3.5Mbps – previously up to 2Mbps).

A new entry level plan will also be introduced, and priced from NZ$29.95 it will provide "a dollar a day broadband" for people who want a basic broadband service.

All new plans, speeds and prices will be launched in early April 2006 according to Matt Crockett (Telecom’s GM Wired Division). Existing residential users will automatically be upgraded to the higher speeds.

“We want to attract new-to-broadband and new-to-internet customers – and this new Xtra Basic plan will help do that,” Mr Crockett said.

The new plans are as follows (listing name, Download Speed/Upload Speed, Allowance, Price, Excess p/MB)

  • Basic (256K/128K 200MB $39.95 2c)
  • Go (2M/128K 1GB $49.95 (Speed limited to 64Kbps))
  • Explorer (3.5M/128K 5GB $59.95 (Speed limited to 64Kbps))
  • Adventure (3.5M/128K 10GB $69.95 (Speed limited to 64Kbps))
  • Pro (3.5M/512K 10GB $89.95 2c)
  • Pro Advanced (3.5M/512K 20GB $109.95 2c)
  • Pro Ultra (3.5M/512K 40GB $159.95 2c)
