Hi, I'm currently using Spark Fibre and I'm not exactly happy with my speeds.

I live in Tawa, Wellington and I'm looking for a new Fibre ISP.

How are your experiences with Voyager? Or is there a better ISP?

A few people here have had good things to say about Voyager recently, but having said that, poor speed is a pretty uncommon complaint about Spark - what problem are you having?

I am also based out in Tawa and use BigPipe as an ISP - they're excellent if you're only looking for Naked internet (aka - without phone). I also use Voyager at my parents house and find it excellent also. Really depends what you're after.

 

Spark is a great ISP too. What problems are you having that is causing you to look around?

I've got the Fibre 30/10 plan for $105, and i've noticed a lot of other ISPs provide 100/20 for around $90-100 and i'd like to try them out.

 

 

 

I do need landline, and i'm not willing to switch over to VoIP, so that voids Big Pipe out (which does looks amazing).

So Voyager use VoIP for their phone service. I'd recommend first contacting Spark and see what they can do before you switch. Often, they'll match another offer.

Been using Voyager for VDSL for quite some time now, never had any issues.
