Consumer NZ launches telecommunications comparison website
Consumer NZ is today launching a telecommunications comparison website which enables consumers to find the best deals from telecommunications and ISP providers.
Telme.org.nz provides price comparisons for internet, landline, mobile, TV and mobile broadband services. The site, which is free, enables consumers to make comparisons of the myriad deals on offer and what those services will cost on an on-going basis.
Consumer NZ Chief Executive Sue Chetwin says: "Telme will help people to work out if they are getting a good deal from telecommunications providers. By spending just a few minutes on the site people will be able to compare prices from the various telcos side by side.
"They will be able to make an informed decision about how much they want to pay for the services that suit them."
Using the free site is simple, Chetwin says. "Consumers input their usage of various services and Telme presents a range of suitable options, clearly outlining the price comparison between them. Consumers can initiate a switch to a new provider via the site."
Consumer NZ has worked with the industry to build the site and is delighted to at last bring a service to New Zealanders where they can easily compare telco services, she said.
Like the development of the Consumer Powerswitch site, which enables people to make easy comparisons of electricity and gas retailers' offerings, Consumer NZ is looking to promote competition in the telco industry and to demystify the huge number of available plans.
