Unlimitedinternet.co.nz merged back into HD.net.nz they now offer gigabit plans however now all plans have gone up in price.

 

They advertise New Zealand's lowest broadband but the prices below don't reflect that

 

Unlimited UFB 30/10 - $75.25 including joining fee

 

Unlimited UFB 100/20 - $82.25 including joining fee

 

Unlimited UFB 200/20 - $92.25 including joining fee

 

Unlimited UFB Gigabit - $98.25 including joining fee

 

Glimp works out cheaper.

I dunno, Unlimited always seemed a bit dodgy to me. No negative reviews on their Facebook page whatsoever, which seems a bit strange. Normally you see good and bad reviews there - not just 100% all good.

Some people have had some success with HD but I don't like the way the owner conducts himself and I'd recommend anyone any day pay a few dollars extra (if in fact they were the cheapest) and be almost anywhere else.

I know they have spent quite a lot on their network over the last year or so, technically they are in pretty good shape I would suggest.

I was with unlimited internet for a while because of the 100/100 but moved because they didn’t offer gigabit, now they do they’re the same price as everyone else for gigabit in fact more expensive

Been with them coming up 3 years no complaints from me.
I like when things just work.

 

Didn't care about pricing, only ISP offering VDSL to my place, at the time, not checked lately

These are Fibre plans not xDSL and you must like paying too much for an internet connection

Price isn't always the leading contender for priorities to be fair. I wouldn't change from a provider I was happy with for a few dollars, though recently despite being happy with my provider from a speed and service perspective, I switched to another provider as there was going to be a $40 a month difference in price, which is pretty significant.

Completely agree I moved to save $40 per month as well... While I was with unlimited internet they were okay... but only because of the price now they're like everyone else prices.

 

They may want to change their slogan as the Commerce commission may lay legal action like they did with stuff-fibre and spark claiming things that are false.

Not had a look for ages, but $72/month for VDSL (as good as I'll get) is still way cheaper than any other main ISP

 

Spark $99
Vodafone $83
2Degrees $85
Voyager $79 (closest with no term contracts)

 

Not sure how I'm paying too much, math says otherwise

 

Anyway all I was saying was, my experience with UL/HD Net has been great, I'm sure this is not what some folk want to hear but it is what it is
Can't comment on Fibre as only Fibre I get is from bread and porridge etc or is that Fiber
