My flatmate (who's the Spark account owner) spoke with them when we had a line fault.
The Spark call centre employee offered him a "free modem and free cordless phone". He asked if by accepting we would be locked into a fixed term contract and they assured him no.
Currently we have a regular cordless phone on the copper cable and a Spark modem on ADSL.
The items have now arrived (minus a SIM card listed in the packing slip). The modem is a Huawei LTE CPE B315 and the cordless phone is Uniden DECT 1715+1.
I see the modem is for 4G. Does that mean Spark are trying to get us off the copper landline?
Does it need a SIM card?
Our 4G service is patchy (with most carriers) as although we are in Auckland city we are tucked away from line of sight of Sky Tower.
Has anyone else had this offer? Do you think it would be without a fixed contract?
And lastly, we were thinking of upgrading to fibre anyway. Would you recommend fibre or 4G or staying with ADSL?
Thanks for your help.
