Poll: Do you know where to find an AED when you're out and about?

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Marlborough Midweek

Hi Marlborough,

The Red Cross Centre and the Blenheim i-Site has received two new defibrillators, or AEDs (automated external defibrillator).

Blenheim i-Site Operations Manager Amy Swain said people often ran to the i-Site for help.

“We're an information centre, so it makes sense that people rush here to ask us for help in an emergency,” Swain said.

“And a lot of international people come here for help too ... while they're not here at the moment, hopefully they will be eventually.”

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
