I've just gone to https://www.spark.co.nz/shop/internet and entered my address, it comes back with "Looks like you can't get any fixed broadband at this address".

 

I've also tried my neighbors and their neighbors.  We all have VDSL but the spark website says nothing is available.

 

I've then tried friends addresses and they also show as nothing available even though they at least get ADSL, my work address in downtown Auckland shows as only getting "wireless broadband" whatever that is.

 

Anyone else got this problem? It seems to take ages to search for the address and (maybe after timing out) says nothing is available.

 

The chorus map at https://www.chorus.co.nz/broadband-options/for-business/broadband-map shows VDSL at all of the addresses I've tried.

 

Is Spark no longer selling VDSL in these areas?
