Broadband providers are joining a slew of other services increasing their prices in 2024. Spark is the latest provider to announce their price rise to customers. As such, many Kiwis will be scrambling to come up with a solution to make savings where possible. 

Why are Broadband Prices Increasing?

It will provide little comfort to know that broadband providers are increasing their prices to combat rising costs in the industry. It costs significant investments for these companies to maintain and upgrade fibre and network infrastructure and technology across the motu. Therefore, in order to keep providing connections to Kiwis, they are having to increase their prices.

Which Broadband Providers Are Increasing Prices?

As of this article being published, Spark is the latest broadband provider to announce their price increase for 2024. However, One NZ and 2degrees will be feeling the pressure of rising costs as well. Kiwis can expect these providers to announce rising prices in the coming months. As with Spark, their price increase will be felt across all the fibre plans. However, the amount of increase will depend on the plan. This is likely going to be the case for all broadband price increases.
