I dont think any provider will be keen on wearing the install costs just to make you feel better, so i would have to say anyone who really needs broadband will find all ISPs offering similar connection fees. Telecom might be desperate enough to connect new users for free, if you dont mind their data prices...

A mininum 12 month contract applies to all New Telecom Broadband subscribers with a $199 early termination fee (http://www.telecom.co.nz/help/content/0,10709,204874-204524,00.html). As for Telecom's data prices, depending on how much you use there plans are actually quite cost effective these days. For instance a Full/Full ADSL2 connection with 10 gigs costs $49.95 per month (with Tolls) which is pretty competitive. Up until recently Xnet did not have any contracts but unfortunately this changed in December last year.


Some providers offer no-contract terms if you pay the Connection Fee, one such provider is Actrix (they also offer a free connection on a 9 month contract). Check out http://www.nzconnection.net/Internet_Plan_and_Pricing_Comparisons for plan comparisons.


Is Mobile internet an option?, both Telecom and Vodafone offer one plan that comes with no contracts (such as Telecom Mobile Broadband 1GB PLUS [$67.44] and Vodafone Broadband Pro 3GB [$79.95]) http://www.nzconnection.net/Internet_Plan_and_Pricing_Comparisons:_Mobile_Data_plans although you'll have to buy your own device.
