Broadband compare offers Now fibre + $85 per month on 12 month contract. Free set up.

I'm currently on Bigpipe 100/20 for $78. And using Ubiquity Amplifi HD mesh router

Are there any fish hooks with switching to Now?

Yeah confused why go to a dearer plan or is it GigE for that price?

Personally I would stay where you are.

Yes Now offer is fibre + 1000/500?

Yes early termination $199.
Only cost is to send modem $15. I don't intend to use supplied modem.

So considerable speed boost for minimal cost.
After 12 months I would check price and shop around if required.

Bigpipe would be $109 per month. retention offer one month free and a modem.

Now has some of the best customer service, however they lack international transit so speeds outside NZ/Aus can vary

 

I recommend now to people that need support, for those who need a public facing IP or are self sufficient that they dont need to call the helpdesk then there are better options

 

 

 

However now does have its place in the market
