So after much wailing and gnashing of teeth,  we now have UFB available in Dunedin.

It's not on our website yet, so you can't sign up directly, so at at this point it is by invitation only. (wow, such exclusive, many gigas)

Our Gigatown plan (1000/500) will be $89/m (or you can choose any of our current UFB plans if you prefer) with all the usual Bigpipe awesome sauce:

Unlimited data,
No throttling,
Leave Anytime contracts,
Awesome Online Support.

We thought we'd make a special offer to geekzoners who are wanting to get UFB with us in Dunedin.


  • If your property has an ONT already installed and ready to go, (with either a live UFB connection or not) we're offering your first 2 months for free at that property, on that ONT.
  • If you don't have UFB already installed in your place, then you get your first month for free (but still a pretty sweet deal)
Offer is exactly the same whether you are a new to Bigpipe customer, or existing Bigpipe customer (because we like existing customers too - seems crazy, right?)

It's invitation only (for now)  which means if you want to take up the offer, PM me the following details


  • Name
  • Email address
  • If you are an existing Bigpipe customer
  • Address you want the connection
  • If you already have a gigatown capable router (and if so, which model)

We'll select a few people at a time to bring on, and PM them the details on what they need to do to sign up.
