Open
Finalists for the 2022 NZ Compare Awards Revealed
Nov 2, 2022

Who will be crowned 2022's leading broadband, energy and mobile companies?

The finalists for the 2022 NZ Compare Awards have been announced today. The awards, which are supported by Movinghub, recognise excellence and achievement in New Zealand’s broadband, energy and mobile sectors.  Celebrating the outstanding service providers that deliver the very best products, value and services for Kiwis.

Gavin Male, Founder and CEO of NZ Compare says, “The pandemic changed the way we live and work as well as increasing our reliance on utilities and connectivity. After an online celebration in 2021 we are ecstatic to be back, in person, for the 2022 NZ Compare Awards, which will be the biggest and best event yet.  The utilities sector as a whole continues to work hard to keep Kiwis connected and charged during ever changing times and these companies continue to come up with innovative solutions to put their customers first.  We are delighted to see so many great companies put their hand up to enter the NZ Compare Awards in 2022.”

Male continues, “Once again, we have seen a record number of entries for this year’s awards, representing a wide range of brands and companies.  It is interesting to see the change in the make-up of the finalists with a number of relatively new providers in broadband and mobile coming in with very strong entries.  As always, the level of competition has been intense.  Our independent judging experts were blown away by the overall quality of entrants and selecting the winners from these finalists will be a tough task!”

Entries to the awards came from a wide range of telecoms and energy providers – from large established players like 2Degrees, Vodafone and Contact through to specialist providers like Farmside, Woi, Wireless Nation and Network 4 Learning.

Winners of the NZ Compare Awards will be announced at a gala awards event, hosted by Mike McRoberts and taking place at the Hunua Rooms in Auckland’s Aotea Centre on Thursday 1st December.  Tickets are selling fast and available to purchase here.  Buy tickets now.
