2degrees to launch nationwide consumer Gigabit Speed Boost

2degrees is launching a nationwide Gigabit Speed Boost to cater for customers’ ever-increasing demands for high speed data.

2degrees Gigabit Speed Boost offers residential customers up to 1Gbps download and up to 500Mbps upload for an extra $44.95 a month when added onto an Ultra-fast fibre plan.

2degrees’ Ultra-fast Fibre Unlimited data, (up to 1Gbps/500Mbps), is priced at $139.95 a month. Customers who join 2degrees for two years can get a monthly discount of $36 off this price in their first year, a saving of $432*. 2degrees Pay Monthly mobile customers also get an extra $10 off their broadband bill each month. The Speed Boost can be pre-ordered from today and officially launches tomorrow on 1 October.

2degrees Chief of Fixed Technology Mark Petrie says, 2degrees customers demand the best experience possible, which is why the Speed Boost will be available for them to order from day one.

“The ability to enjoy gigabit speeds right across the country in both urban and rural fibre areas opens up a whole new world of possibilities for future technologies. We’re seeing insatiable appetite for data across our network and expect demand for gigabit services to continue to grow.”

Mr Petrie says it will continue to deliver on 2degrees’ promise to ensure its customers can receive the fastest speeds possible.

“Through our ongoing network development program including the 100Gbps Southern Cross interconnect and Juniper powered network upgrades we’re future proofing to meet this growing need which will only intensify as more people connect more devices in their home.”

2degrees has award winning 24/7/365 support, and has been rated by Netflix as one of the country’s fastest carriers in its ISP speed index.

The new Speed Boost is intended for high data users with multiple devices rather than single-computer households and will be made available to business customers later this year.  Customers can sign up to 2degrees’ Gigabit Speed Boost online, in store, or by calling 0800 022 022.


*Terms: 24 month offer for a limited time. Broadband not available everywhere. $15 modem and $15 delivery charge, $249 exit fee and terms apply.  Additional charges may apply to non-standard installations.

A $50 fee applies to remove/downgrade Speed Boost. Stated speeds are a theoretical maximum and can vary based on local conditions. See 2degreesmobile.co.nz/broadband for full Terms and Conditions.

2degrees customers with a 200/200Mbps Speed Boost will automatically be migrated to Gigabit Speed Boost over the next month.
