Commenting after the winners were announced, Gavin Male, founder and CEO for Broadband Compare enthused “The second year of the Broadband Compare TUANZ Awards have been a huge success. We were delighted by the quality of entries and number of brands that participated in this year’s award and our judges had a tough task selecting a winner for each category. It was fantastic to see so many people from the Internet and Communications sector come together to celebrate excellence in their sector.” 

“The broad range of entries and winners this year represent what Broadband Compare and TUANZ advocate for – high quality connectivity across New Zealand at fair, competitive prices. These companies exemplify those qualities and should be commended for their achievements.  There are a wealth of different options out there for consumers and businesses.” 

The broad range of providers that entered the awards reflect the changing landscape in New Zealand’s Internet, Communications and Technology sector. 

Male says, “As New Zealand matures we are seeing better connectivity, greater diversity of products and an increase in competition across the market which gives Kiwis far more choice and possibilities than ever before. We urge everyone to take a few minutes to check their current broadband plan to ensure they are making the most of innovations in technology and great savings. There are lots of great new options out there that consumers may not be aware of.”

Male continues “We would like to thank all of our sponsors and entrants, and congratulations again to all of the category winners. We are already looking forward to next year where the awards will be back event bigger and better.”
