It may be better known as a media company, but Stuff's broadband offering has been awarded top honours at the Broadband Compare TUANZ Awards in Auckland this evening.

The awards were hosted by Broadband Compare, a free to use broadband comparison website operated by NZ Compare and TUANZ, the independent, not-for-profit membership association with over 170 New Zealand corporate and individual members.

Entries were received from more than 25 different internet service providers - from established players such as 2degrees, Vodafone, Trustpower and Slingshot to newer entrants in the market and specialist providers such as Stuff Fibre, NOW, Farmside, Network for Learning and Primo Wireless.

Head Judge and NZ Compare CEO Gavin Male says this year's winners highlight the growing range of options available to the consumer in the NZ broadband market. "So much has changed and there are more options than ever which is where Broadband Compare helps Kiwis make a fully informed choice on their broadband plan," he says.

"A range of entries displayed true innovation in the way that New Zealand service providers are understanding their customers' needs and delivering ground-breaking services and packages. We were delighted to see a consistent commitments to innovation, quality control and customers across New Zealand."

Stuff Fibre received four awards, including NZ Compare People's Choice Awards 2019 and TUANZ NZ Provider of the Year. It is a virtual internet provider whose offering is enabled by telecommunications wholesaler Devoli as a white-label service. Stuff Fibre offers two products: 100Mbps or up to 1Gbps and it uses its association with the Stuff website (which, according to Nielsen, has 2.1 million unique visitors a month) to reach new customers.
