So I've never had to worry about my broadband connection, it's always been taken care of by someone else on the prooperty.

Now I'm wanting a place of my own, and I'm wondering what I need to do to ensure the new place is setup properly to allow me to connect via broadband? (tis a rental so I don't know it's history.)

Secondly... ugh what is WITH the plans here in NZ!? 

I don't use home phones so for me it's a bit silly to be forced to have a fixed home line just so I can have broadband with one provider, but then pay the earth to another provider for a non landline option.

Any recommendations guys? It's "cheaper" if I have an on account plan with Vodafone; but right now I get my phone plan for free. I don't want to have to move to Vodafone and pay that on top of the broadband fee. I do get 50gb per month with this deal, which is about how much I use per month.

Telecom has a deal going on where you pay $75 for the landline and broadband, but only 30gb. I don't have a choice but to have that landline.

Are there better deals out there? Help?

p.s. did try check the Telstra Clear site, but it's currently not loading. It's them, not me :P every other webpage opens fine.

I was with Vodafone before moving to snap. Vodafone was always really good and I have little doubt they still are but they didn't offer VDSL hence the move to snap. If you have sky and\or on account mobile with vodafone I think some of their offers are really compelling.

But for me since the move Snap have been outstanding, I really can't recommend them enough, performance is really good, they're uber helpful and their helpdesk in my experience really is ridiculously good.


What do you mean by the following though? I got a bit lost with what you mean here.

Do you mean you have a Telecom mobile account already?
