Snap purchase bears fruition as 2degrees joins broadband market

“Now we see one of our key strategic goals come to fruition."

2degrees has officially entered the New Zealand broadband market with the launch of its first consumer plans, following the company’s purchase of Snap earlier this year.

According to the telco, two residential broadband plans are now available - 80Gb for $69 and an unlimited plan for $89 with new and existing 2degrees Pay Monthly mobile customers set to receive a $10 discount on a bundled package.

In addition to the announcement, 2degrees has also partnered with Sky NEON to give customers unlimited access to content for the first six months.

A number of optional services are also available - fibre customers can super-charge their speeds from $10 and all customers can bundle their home phone with unlimited New Zealand and Australian landline calls from $15 per month.

“Now we see one of our key strategic goals come to fruition - providing both mobile and broadband services to our customers,” says Stewart Sherriff, CEO, 2degrees.

“Becoming a full service provider is something our customers have been asking us for - particularly as Kiwis continue to embrace more data intensive lifestyles and move to UFB fibre services.”

According to Sherriff, 2degrees’ purchase of Snap earlier this year has allowed the company to accelerate its entry in to the broadband market using Snap’s national network infrastructure.

“With residential and enterprise customers now able to access 2degrees broadband, and business customers shortly, we are now well positioned to compete in all segments of the market to support our customers’ growing digital needs,” he adds.

“Kiwis have told us the broadband market is too complex - there are so many different plans to choose from, it’s hard to navigate through the jargon and actually work out what is right for them.

“They have also told us they want a reliable connection, quality customer service and, most importantly, simple pricing and plans.

“From today, we deliver just that and make the choice and process simple for our customers.”

According to the company, Sherriff says announcing a partnership with Sky NEON is also a “major coup” for the telco.

“In a world where content is king, we’re excited to partner with Sky NEON, a premium content provider which will see our customers get unlimited access to a world of leading movies and TV on demand - and it’s all on us for the first six months,” he adds.
