That's interesting. Not doing gigabit in all areas, eg Invercargill not named on the list even though Chorus map (and myrepublic) offers 1Gbps. Maybe later ...

Invercargill in the mix or not? (Chorus maps and myrepublic offer 1Gbps at said address)

Sounds like they want to roll it out slowly but it's not really clear where yet

That's a slow speed.... If only you could get my speeds, but then again your latency is acceptible :)

Here now:

 



Spark customers can now buy Ultra Fast Fibre MAX, a broadband service delivered over gigabit technology. This new broadband plan option is now the fastest residential broadband service available from Spark.

Spark’s Fibre MAX uses a gigabit connection over the UFB (Ultra Fast Broadband) network. The actual speed a customer will get varies based on a number of factors. For instance, to get the fastest speeds possible, customers will need to have high specification hardware in their homes and be testing over an Ethernet connection.

When used in optimal conditions, Ultra Fast Fibre MAX should provide speeds of between 700Mbps and 900Mbps download / 400Mbps upload. In trials, even higher speeds have been achieved, of up to 930Mbps.

Ultra Fast Fibre MAX can now be purchased nationwide for consumer and business addresses where the Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) network is available – with a few exceptions. Services are not yet available in Queenstown, Greymouth, Oamaru or Whakatane until further notice, as work is being undertaken to ensure that the network is ready to support Ultra Fast Fibre MAX speeds. Otherwise, any customer with UFB available can purchase Ultra Fast Fibre Max: availability can be checked using Spark’s address checker.

Customers can purchase a bundled broadband and home phone Fibre MAX plan with unlimited data for $149.99/ month – or a broadband only Fibre MAX plan with unlimited data for $139.99/ month. Businesses can purchase a bundled broadband and landline Fibre MAX plan with unlimited data for $212.85 ex GST – or a broadband only Fibre MAX plan with unlimited data for $179.85 ex GST.

All consumer Spark Ultra Fibre plans come with: Lightbox on us – online TV; Spark Security Suite - 5 free McAfee Security licenses; email - free Xtra email service; 24/7 help and support - over the phone and online, including a live webchat service; and lots more benefits for Spark customers including Spark Thanks and 1GB a day Free Public WiFi. See www.spark.co.nz/getmore for details.

Will the lower speed broadband be given free speed boosts?
