Im moving into a property where i dont think its going to be so easy to get fibre - long concrete drive way and having wires running down drive wont look great.

Thats why im looking at VDSL providers in Auckland

Can anyone recommend a particular company/plan

i would be needing an unlimited plan, no phone line needed

Bigpipe.

But try to get fiber anyway. Who cares about cables down the drive when you get 200 instead of 20.

Most people here are probably going to recommend Bigpipe. I've heard good things but haven't tried them myself (due to their lack of fibre coverage, rather than my house!)
