One New Zealand raises fixed line broadband prices
One New Zealand has today announced that from 2 October it will increase its prices on its Fibre Unlimited and Fibre Max plans by $6, HFC Unlimited Broadband by $5, and ADSL and VDSL Unlimited Broadband by $7. These price increases reflect rising input costs including third-party local network companies' price rises.
“Most of what you pay for a copper or fibre broadband connection is made up by your local network company, for example Chorus, Enable, Tuatahi First Fibre or Northpower,” says Joe Goddard, Experience and Commercial Director, One New Zealand.
Local network companies provide the connection along the street, between a customer’s home, and the One New Zealand network.
He continues: “We always try and offer you the most competitive prices, but with the local network companies putting their prices up, and other rising operational costs which everyone across Aotearoa are facing such as utilities, transport and labour, we have unfortunately had to increase our prices this year.”
Customers on these plans will receive an email from One New Zealand in August, outlining what this price rise means for them, and offering alternatives where applicable.
