The Inaugural Broadband Compare Awards

The Sapphire Room, Ponsonby Central, Auckland

The Judging Process

The Broadband Compare Awards winners are based on a combination of criteria. These include consumer surveys and reviews on the Broadband Compare site, decisions from our expert judging panel, as well as broadband speed and reliability data that has been collected from the results of thousands of speed tests that have been conducted throughout the year.

We will survey 100s of broadband decision-makers through insight agency The Interpreters to provide additional consumer data to help our judges to decide the best providers for value, customer service and bundled broadband and landline plans.

To determine the fastest providers, we have used data from our partner TrueNet for the most complete picture of broadband speed in New Zealand.
