Unlimited Naked Fibre prices
Compare UFB Fibre Prices in New Zealand
Prices Last Updated on 2nd of May 2017
TrueNet compares prices for UFB fibre with Unlimited data and naked (ie no phone line), as offered by ISPs where TrueNet regularly reports on performance measurements.
Some ISPs do not offer all services as naked fibre services, so we do not include their prices.
Minimal speed (30Mb/s down)
The slowest Fibre at 30Mb/s is very comparable to VDSL speeds, averaging 25Mb/s. However VDSL can achieve 40Mb/s up to 1km from the exchange. We have decided to cease reporting 30Mb/s fibre becasue it is not being offered by many ISPs
Standard Speed (100/20 Mb/s)
The price for the most popular 100/20Mb/s service is usually about $10/month more than the 30/10 price.Chart 1: 100Mb/s Download and 20Mb/s Upload
Fast, 200/20 and 100/50Mb/s services
The unlimited 200/20 Mb/s product is the most popular with mid-range price between the GigE price and 100/20.Chart 2: 200Mb/s Download & 20Mb/s Upload
Very Fast, Unlimited Naked GigE
Unlimited naked GigE is now offered by all major ISP's with download speed on a connection where the line is as fast as the GigE line will allow. That does not mean 1000Mb/s, because that is not possible due to overheads and the probability that the network is just not big enough to handle that sort of speed. We see GigE like DSL, ie "as fast as your line will allow", however would rewrite to be "as fast as the internet will allow"
UFB - Ultra Fast Broadband or the fibre rollout that is being partly funded by the NZ government to supply fibre connections to all urban residences.
Naked - the term applied to lines that do not have a phone line included - often users revert to mobile phones or an internet phone line (VoIP).
Unlimited - The term used to imply that there is no limit to the amount of data consumed by the user.
