This arrived in my inbox this afternoon.  It seemed a bit odd that they are pitching this as a special offer, but after playing with it for a bit, it does seem to be useful in that it picked out the best ongoing deal, compared to the best first year deal.  We are are on VDSL with an unlimited Spark contract, and we get 49Mb/s down, and 10.5Mb/s which is not too bad as we are rural at Rapaura (nr Blenheim) and effectively 1km from the cabinet. We have had fibre running across the road from us for years, but there are no plans to let us connect to it.

 

The Try it now  link resolves to https://www.trademe.co.nz/compare/

 

Although I can't help but suspect that everyone in the country with a TradeMe account received the same 'offer' today.

I just used Geekzone broadband, and it did not offer Vodafone fibre max (yes I know it’s not). Funny, because that’s what I’m currently on.

Voyager never seems to show up in any of these compare tools when I use them, which I find odd as I'm with Voyager and none of the 'deals' that show up with these tools are as good as my current plan.  I'm VDSL as that's the best we can get.

Remember these site comparison don't do it for free - they have deals in place with the ISP - Voyager probably has made a decision to not participate in these sites.

For me Trademe (VDSL2) shows:
Skinny $73, My Republic $79.99, Compass $79.95, My Republic $89.99, Flip $89.95, Big Pipe $89, Spark $94.99, 2Degrees $85, Spark $104.99 

 

vs

 

Geekzone:
My Republic $79.99, 2Degrees $85, Big Pipe $89, Flip $89.95, My Republic $89.99, Spark $94.99

 

Only difference is Skinny and Compass are on Trademe not Geekzone
Pricing the same for both.

 

I'm with Unlimited Internet $75 not shown on either compare tool
