Hyperfibre - NZ's fastest broadband
2000 Mbps, 4000 Mbps and 8000 Mbps speeds available
Fibre offers a fast and reliable broadband connection, making it the most popular broadband choice for Kiwis. Hyperfibre shifts it to a whole new level.
Up to 40x faster than the average New Zealand broadband speed, Hyperfibre is the very definition of a seamless online experience.
At home, Hyperfibre’s speed and capacity ensures no matter how much ultra-high definition video, smart appliances, cloud storage, video uploads, advanced gaming, working from home and multiple connected devices you want to have in the household, your broadband connection will be rock solid.
While in business, Hyperfibre's incredibly low-latency makes it perfect when using high performance software applications that depend on real-time communication and high-resolution images. Hyperfibre also offers the potential to enable a new era of digital creativity and innovation in business, leading to the development of new products and services and improved levels of productivity.
And the best thing about Hyperfibre? It's available now, in all towns where the fibre network has been built as part of the first stage of the UFB project (which is over 80% of New Zealand). So regardless if you're in Ponsonby or Timaru, you can access some of the fastest broadband speeds on the planet.
- Multiple, simultaneous gigabit downloads
- Experience lower latency
- Game and stream your heart out
- Enjoy the fastest broadband connection available
Broadband connections using Hyperfibre technology are available nationwide from October 2020 provided the region you're in already has access to the Chorus fibre network as part of the first stage of the UFB project.
Use the Chorus broadband checker to see if it's available in your area.
There is no build work required with a Hyperfibre connection as it still uses the Chorus fibre network which is already underground. But a technician will need to visit and change the ONT (optical network terminal) in your premises to a new one capable of handling Hyperfibre speeds. It's easy can be done in one quick visit.
When Hyperfibre is available in your area you'll be able to contact your preferred broadband provider directly to place your order. They'll send your order to us and we will schedule your upgrade.
This upgrade will take place in two parts:
1. We connect your fibre to our Hyperfibre network at the local exchange.
2. We visit your premises and replace your ONT (that’s the network terminal in your home) with a new one capable of handling Hyperfibre speeds.
Find the right connection for you
Not all broadband is created equal. Before you choose a plan with your service provider it’s good to understand the different types of network connections that deliver a broadband service. We've provided an indication of the performance and cost of broadband connections based on the latest Measuring Broadband New Zealand (MBNZ) report. The names of the connection types might vary from the name a broadband provider uses when selling you a service.

* Speed and latency: The broadband speeds quoted are national peak time average speeds based on the Commerce Commission’s latest Measuring Broadband New Zealand (MBNZ) report. These performance measures are indicative and you may experience faster or slower speeds depending on a range of factors, including: your broadband plan, modem, home wifi setup and the capacity of your broadband provider’s network. Read our tips for getting the best home wifi experience and the steps you can take to improve your broadband speed.
Latency refers to the time it takes for data to move from one device to another and is an important consideration when using real-time applications like video calls and online games. Lower is better. The Measuring Broadband New Zealand report doesn't provide data on Fibre Starter and Hyperfibre connections yet, so these latency figures are based on Chorus data and reflects the MBNZ finding that there is no material difference in latency between different fibre connections.
** Hyperfibre is available at connection speeds of 2,000 Mbps, 4,000 Mbps and 8,000 Mbps.
+ Cost: Offers vary between service providers – these indicative prices come from Broadband Compare as at May 2022 and don’t include any other costs (like modems) your service provider might charge. Please contact a provider to understand the actual cost.
++ Netflix streaming reliability: The proportion of households able to stream two Ultra High Definition videos from Netflix with variable bitrate encoding based on the latest Measuring Broadband New Zealand (MBNZ) report. The MBNZ report doesn't report on Hyperfibre streaming reliability yet, but does note that higher bandwidth connections like Fibre 300 and Fibre Pro are able to reliably stream high-quality video more of the time. We've given Hyperfibre a 100% Netflix streaming reliability value because it offers higher bandwidth than Fibre 300 and Fibre Pro.
