Kiwis Are Still Not Taking Advantage of Fibre 2018-04-27 06:18:07
A recent opinion piece in Stuff speculated about the reasons why Kiwis have not been rushing to sign up to ultrafast broadband. Despite the many benefits of fibre broadband, only 40 percent of Kiwis who have access to fibre have signed up.

One of the reasons the author proposed is the “principle of good enough” – basically, that people are happy with the technology they currently have despite better options being available.

Other hindrances might include the price, the occasional horror story about installation, and concern over losing your landline.

However, many of these potential obstacles are based on false information. For example, fibre installation is free and is generally completed quickly and without hassle. As well, landlines can be kept even with fibre installation.

As far as price is concerned, significant savings can be made by shopping around for the cheapest fibre package based on your needs. Using a tool like glimp’s fibre broadband checker, consumers can compare broadband prices in their area.

“Fibre broadband is many times faster than ADSL, with download speeds of up to 1000 megabits per second,” says Michael Speight of glimp. “It uses fibre optics cables and light to deliver data much faster than standard copper lines, and performance isn’t affected by distance. That means your internet speed is consistent no matter how far away your home is from the broadband cabinet.”

When it comes down to it, there’s no good reason for Kiwis not to make the switch to fibre, except perhaps for fear of change.

If you’re interested in learning more about fibre broadband, and perhaps even making the switch, the first step is to inform yourself of your available options, so head to glimp to compare fibre broadband plans today.
