    Default Unlimited broadband in Auckland?

    I'm an expat, living in Arizona. Son is a freelance illustrator, with Kiwi citizenship. He and family are thinking of living in NZ for a few years.
    His work is done completely over the internet. He needs hi-speed internet with unlimited upload/downloads for his work. Is there such a thing in Auckland?

    I'm originally from Warkworth - 45 minutes north of Auckland, where it is difficult finding hi-speed anything (except for the tourist traffic on the weekends! )

    Many thanks in advance.....

    If you look on here you should find some previous general threads about broadband in NZ for you to sift through.

    If there is anyone up past Auckland perhaps they can chip in with more precise info from that area.

    Thanks, Mother Bear. I went through old posts, but am hoping to find some updated info as broadband availability changes by the month in NZ. Hoping someone from Auckland will have some info! Thanks.

    You can get fast internet here in aucks, broadband adsl +2!

    I don't think there is a provider out there who does the unlimited thing like in europe/us etc but you can get up to 40GB for $80 a month on adsl+2

    Apologies Newbiekiwi, it was supposed to take you to the forum's search facility with a list of all the threads relating to broadband, but obviously didn't work. Here's one link but if you do your own search for the word 'broadband', it should bring up some other threads for you to look through.
