coffeebaron: Yeah, I wonder if the AI woud recommend the Home Starter Fibre plan?


Do spark sell HFS?


Also, people need to not be fooled that 4G is faster than VDSL - there is no right answer to this as it all depends on Tower Capacity / distance to cabinet / etc.


Both can provide 120mbps but in any given location one will be better than the other and that will vary per address.

Something interesting, Spark is now offering Lite Fibre 










Lite Fibre




Ideal for small to medium households with a few devices online.


  • 4K/HD video streaming

Once you reach 120GB of data usage in a billing period you can continue using data but at a reduced speed.'

Curious to what the reduced speed would be considering starting out at 50/10....

If 50/10 interests anyone.. 




zeronet has a deal via broadbandcompare for 50/10 unlimited data on a 12 month term, they also provide a free router if required. Disconnection fees apply if within term.


$29.99/mo for 6 months then $59.99/mo for the last 6 months(then $69.99/mo iirc)




179.94 for first 6 months


359.94 for second 6 months


$49.99 for connection fee




$589.87 or $49.16/mo for the 12 months(then $69.99/mo or move)




Sucks to have a data cap via Spark but the plan is open term, a 12 month term signup gets a sales incentive(~$75) which allows other providers to offer more favourable options.
