We have just purchased a house in New Plymouth, fibre broadband available- where do I start? Any suggestions who to go to for electric/Internet/insurance. Thanks

Assuming you were renting before why not just stay with the same companies you have a history with?

I've just signed up with Electric Kiwi who give one hour free a day (off peak).

If you want to sign up click on this link and we'll both get $50 off.

Yeah, love the 'hour of power' you get with electric kiwi. If you set your hour to say 9-10pm at night And remember to set your big things like dishwasher, washing machine etc then its awesome. It's a great small, new kiwi company giving the big boys a big nose bleed nicking their marketshare

Can't get Electric Kiwi where I am. Been with Genesis for all the time we've been in NZ so did a comparison thing and it came up with Mercury and Powershop beating Genesis by over $500 per year and since Powershop have a cash offer at sign up I've switched to them.
Only time will tell if it's cheaper
