Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) is the next generation network being built in New Zealand. Instead of traditional copper cables Ultra Fast Broadband is delivered over Fibre Optic cables right to the building. Fibre transmit data using light pulses rather than electric currents. This allows for more traffic over longer distances with far less degradation or interference of the signal resulting in a much faster connection.
UFB is the future of the Internet in New Zealand and it is available to some people right now. Ten times faster broadband brings with it a host of new possibilities and technologies. Replace your old phone line with VoIP (Voice over Internet) to experience high quality voice with a raft of extra features. Manage your home security remotely and have security cameras streaming live video to your device in real time. Watch what you want on Internet TV in High Definition when you choose. Stream the best quality on demand video, radio and music.
Ultra Fast Broadband is currently being rolled out to towns and cities all over NZ. To check if UFB is available at your address simply use our Address Finder. A UFB installation to your home or school is absolutely free, this is possible due to Government subsidies but is only in place for a limited time so if Ultra Fast Broadband is available at your address it is worth getting it installed as soon as possible. Business installations are subject to a fee. If you have any questions about UFB don't hesitate to call us on freephone 0800 228 749 or take a look at the frequently asked questions on the UFB Plus website.
You will need a UFB capable router for your connection. You can choose to provide your own, or purchase one while signing up and we will be configured for you. All the other necessary equipment is taken care of during the installation.
We have a fantastic selection of UFB plans that you can mix and match to fit your needs. There are various speed choices available: 30Mbps Download with 10Mbps Upload, a speedy 100Mbps Download with 50 Mbps Upload and even a blistering 200Mbps on selected plans. You can include high quality phone line and monitored home security or go with a naked, UFB only connection. Use the tabs to choose a broadband speed and the tick boxes to add or remove features from your plan below. To check availability at your address simply enter your address in the Address Finder. For business connections please see the business plans. If you cannot get Ultra Fast Broadband at your address and you are in an urban area it may be worth considering VDSL as the next best option.
