Spark expands wireless broadband to 500,000 additional homes

23 Jul 2021

Spark has announced that it has opened up its uncapped wireless broadband product, dubbed Unplan Metro, to more than half a million households across New Zealand. The expansion means that approximately two thirds of addresses (around 1.2 million homes), including over 10% of rural households, now have access to uncapped connectivity.

Spark Product Director Tessa Tierney said the company has a long-term goal to make unconstrained capacity available for all New Zealanders and is investing over NZD100 million (USD70 million) every year in its mobile network to make that goal a reality. ‘We’re really happy to be able to take this next step toward uncapping New Zealand. We know Kiwis’ appetite for data is growing and as we continue upgrading and building more cell sites to increase capacity, we’re making uncapped broadband available to as many people as possible,’ she stated.

Spark’s Unplan Metro offer flexes the price a customer pays based on their monthly usage, giving them the freedom to use more if they want, and enjoy savings when they use less. Prices start at NZD65 for a base data usage of up to 60GB, NZD75 for 60GB-120GB and NZD85 for 120GB or more.
