Broadband on a fixed line at its most basic level
Our basic fixed line broadband service, ADSL, allows you to do things like web browsing, online banking, and emailing.
Because it connects a residence to the internet using the legacy copper network and phone lines, ADSL has traditionally been the most commonly available form of broadband in New Zealand. However, with fibre and the faster copper broadband, VDSL, now accessible throughout virtually all of New Zealand, ADSL is becoming less popular.
It does, however, have a place because ADSL provides a dedicated connection from your home to our congestion-free network, ensuring that your internet will not be considerably slowed during peak usage hours such as nights and weekends. If you can’t obtain VDSL or fiber, this is a good alternative.
Find out if you can get fiber and what you can do to connect your home or business to it if you’re not part of the government-sponsored ultra-fast internet deployment.
