What is ADSL?

ADSL is our basic fixed line broadband service and supports everyday activities such as web browsing, online banking, and emailing.

ADSL is the most commonly used type of broadband technology because it relies on our legacy copper network to connect. With phone lines already in place for most homes and business across the country, ADSL is available to most of New Zealand. It provides a dedicated line to your property so your broadband is just for your household. This means the connection from our network to your property won’t slow down significantly in busy times like nights and weekends.
