Set Up Charges

Electric Kiwi can provide you with a modem if needed. Alternatively, you can choose to use your own modem if it is compatible. Full details of the three options can be found below:

  • Buy
    You can purchase outright for $150 on your first bill.

  • Rent
    Rent to own an Orbi modem for $0.20 per day (750 days, or 2 years 20 days). Once you have paid off the $150 cost of the modem, it’s yours to keep!

    If you leave before then, you can choose to pay for the remaining amount via your final bill and keep your modem, or send it back to us at no extra cost.

    If you choose to return the modem, you will have 30 days to do so once we have provided you the courier bag before the outstanding balance will be applied to your account.

  • BYOD
    You can use your own device that works on our [network] - see our BYOD page for more info.

Effects on other services

Your Fibre broadband service requires mains power to operate. If power is not available (e.g. during a power outage), your broadband, and any services which run over it, may stop working unless you have battery backup in your home

You should check with the provider of any existing essential services such as security alarms, medical alarms and EFTPOS to make sure they will operate with this fibre (UFB) broadband service.

If you are using a VOIP voice service using the Bigpipe connection, this will stop working if your broadband connection has an issue or outage. This would prevent you from using it to make calls in emergency situations from your VOIP voice service. We would recommend using your mobile phone instead in this situation.

Note that our Sweet As Fibre Broadband service does not include a landline phone connection.


Information about our complaints process is set out at clause 12 of our Broadband Terms and conditions.
