    If I am forced over to fibre due to POTS discontinuation, I would be going to Spark's Fibre Max.

    I'd go for something with 50Mbit upload at least. Or just get a Fibre max plan etc.
    I have thought about paying that $15 more for gigabit but we just don't do much uploading. Like many NZ households I guess. We consume internet and videos etc but we really hardly do any uploading apart from my JPEG 900kb upload to a photography discussion forum or upload onto Facebook / Instagram. Google Drive / Dropbox I do use for backup just in case but it is really just once a month with that 500MB or so.

    Fair enough, my backups are a bit bigger than that. I currently have something closer to 500GB stored on Backblaze. From two laptops and several desktops, plus other miscellaneous files.

    I would avoid Vodafone but then that's because I used to work with them and they made my life horrible..

    They have a reputation for terrible customer service.

    How about Voyager? Good service, good prices....
