Once the discounts come off Spark will probably be the most expensive one.

The add ons are worth nothing to me, no free wifi box in range of places go to,
And only thing watched with light box was "The Chosen" in last 3 to six months.

After experiencing 30/10 verses 100/20 I'll stay 100/20. Also I'm a bit iffy about CGNAT
Which a few ISP's do, and it looks like to me Spark possibly spends the most on keeping
Good international speeds, hand over links etc, so I don't wish to switch and risk not having
Everything working perfectly like it is at the moment.

Rather have Spotify then Lightbox, but guess that's the way it is.

Wheelbarrow01: And let's not forget all the added bonuses - Lightbox, public WiFi, Spotify etc.


Is Spotify included with the internet plans?



Spotify is not part of broadband offerings, only mobile.

Not all ISPs have set that up yet and Spark specifically hasn't done it. Because of the way Chorus has handled/implemented the change it makes it a difficult and costly exercise for us to implement it reliably and without impacting business customers and customers on non Chorus LFCs.


We are doing it, but it's not a simple change.
