I guess it depends entirely what you're wanting a VPN for.

Are you wanting a fast NZ based VPN provider because you use the growing number of free public hotspots a lot and want to ensure your traffic isn't being snooped upon?

Or is it because you break the law by downloading coprighted material and wanting to know the best way to avoid being caught?

I'm looking for a balance between speed and privacy, my own experience thus far, has been one cops out the other, my own search has revealed very little on vpn in New Zealand.
Considering your position sbiddle, on this forum, I resent the accusation that you may accuse me of illegal activity,
indeed as an ex-pat I have currently returned to NZ, to experience the RWC, and am attempting to continue my employment via the web, thus far the Internet and the RWC, have been a gross disappointment.

many thank in advance

Not sure if sbiddle was accusing you but the vpn recommendation may differ if you are downloading TV programmes and the like - because some vpns do have a dmca process in place that could cause you to lose your account with them.

Or maybe to use it to violate AUP/TOSes of american websites?

Guys, you don't need to police the internet. Just help out someone asking for help, and let them be responsible for their own actions.

I'm not making any accusations - but you haven't been very clear in your requirements. 

if you explain exactly what you want your VPN for then people could help you - because depending on your requirements there are many different options.

If you're wanting something to protect your security while using free wifi hotspots for example you're not going to want something hosted on the other side of the world resulting in massive latency. Likewise if you want to view UK TV shows with a UK geo IP range you're going to want an entirely different option.

A VPN can mean many things.
