The official Techday internet service provider poll – who turns you on?

29 Feb 16

Internet in New Zealand is a hot topic right now. Fibre consents are being rushed through, top providers had their customer service thrown into the spotlight, the Government completed its UFB in schools programme, Fiji’s cyclone played havoc with Vodafone’s towers, our own recent Christchurch quake caused some congestion

In the workplace, we're more online than ever. Multiple devices, remote workers, BYOD, VoIP... major tech trends that are reshaping how we do business.

So it got us thinking about what company New Zealanders actually use to get their internet at home or at work.
