interesting they are limiting upload to 20Mbps - I am currently on 100/50. Doubt I would care.

Time to cancel the home phone line I think - only calls I get are from telemarketers, people after donations and the in-laws.

Do they provide routers with gigabit ports on them? Would seem silly to sell a 200Mbps service with 100Mbps ports.

Yes the 200mbit plan comes with the Huawei 659b which has gigabit LAN.




My views are my own, and may not necessarily represent those of my employer.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

I can stay on 100/50 if i want, they will be coming out with 200/200 plans soon(tm). I don't know what wizardry they have done but according to the sales rep, any normal phone will work with their VOIP service.

Are they finally doing voice over VoIP instead of requiring you to keep your copper too?

I'm thinking the same -- my snap contract ends shortly (if not already) so this is very tempting. A return to the fold so to speak.

The offer summary says "This package comes with a Fibre landline" so it looks like it :)

I guess its  "NO PICK UPS" for the "free modem " 


Sign up with Spark for 12 months, standard connection and a new WiFi Modem is free. $9.95 delivery fee applies.*

Uhh, the telecom website for checking the new UFB prices is poorly designed if you want IP phone too. 

Can't figure out how much it costs for 200/20 UFB, with landline, and national calling.   I clicked learn more on the phone options and it tells me there are a variety of options yet does not list the options with prices. 

SO, i give up, sorry telecom.

That is correct. Fibre VoIP services are now available in UFB areas where no copper has been laid (eg new subdivisions, apartment buildings etc).

Existing Spark Ultra Fibre customers can also migrate their voice service from copper to fibre.

There is also no pre-requisite to get broadband - Spark will now offer voice only services over fibre where copper voice is not available, subject to UFB availability of course.






The views expressed by me are not necessarily those of my employer Chorus NZ Ltd
