What’s the deal with Trustpower broadband?

Although Trust Power’s basic broadband prices are some of the highest in the market, their current deal of six-months half-price on a 24-month contract makes them far more competitive.

However, you also need to factor in the cost of the power that comes with the bundle, and that the deal locks you in for two years.

Plus Trustpower also offers a wide range of sign-up bonuses:

  • $50 account credit for online sign-ups
  • Choose from a range of joining rewards, including fridges, TVs and washing machines
  • Duel-fuel discounts on gas and electricity
