You have already been told that some of the information your seeking is commercially sensitive so you will struggle to obtain it.

And the rest is just a simple search in Google or using one of the websites listed above, such as NZ Connections, where you have already asked this question...

Better yet, as its your research, you should look for the information yourself.

All you have to do is follow the handy links provided from a site like NZ Connections to every ISP, and read their site to find out where they operate, what services they provide, how many operate in particular areas, average costs you could easily glean from our Internet Plans-Pricing Comparisons table, with a bit of simple math once you know which ISP's operate in which region...

Collating data is not that hard, it just takes time....
