Naked broadband provider Bigpipe has extended its national reach with the launch of its unlimited UFB offering into Wellington.
The Spark Venture business is giving Wellingtonians the choice of three Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) plans, including the 200Mbps download/200Mbps upload offering, one of the fastest available for customers in Wellington.
The launch of UFB into Wellington kicks off a targeted growth plan with the ISP set to roll out its Fibre offering into four other major New Zealand centres including Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton and Palmerston North.
Oliver Smith, Head of Bigpipe, says Kiwi consumers expect high speed internet connection even during peak periods, and Bigpipe has proven its ability to deliver on this front, even with the launch of bandwidth intensive video streaming services like Lightbox and Netflix.
“At Bigpipe we pride ourselves on offering UFB with a download speed of no less than 100Mbps - anything less defeats the purpose of UFB,” Smith adds.
“With the entry of new digital entertainment offerings now in market, consumer online interaction and consumption patterns are changing rapidly and the need for fast, reliable and accessible UFB has never been more relevant.”
The March 2015 Truenet report recently showed Bigpipe as the least congested network at peak times, compared with other ISP’s that dropped.
“We maintained our position throughout with 98% speed obtained at peak times and we’re thrilled to deliver a consistently great service to our customers in Auckland and now in Wellington,” Smith adds.
Smith says the three plans Bigpipe is launching will offer the same benefits their standard plans do – unlimited data, no landline needed, dedicated online support, and no term contracts – with the choice of upload/download speeds aligned to varying levels of investment.
“We are excited to offer Wellington, the opportunity to get the best download and upload speeds with unlimited data - the way the internet is meant to be enjoyed,” he adds.
