The countdown begins: Meet the finalists for NZ Compare People’s Choice Awards 2023

Thousands of Kiwis have cast their vote and had their say on who they believe offers the best Broadband, Power and Mobile services in Aotearoa, and today, we are thrilled to announce the finalists for the NZ Compare People’s Choice Awards 2023.

The People’s Choice categories are always hotly contested and the finalists that we are announcing here have been endorsed in their respective categories by those people that matter to them the most, their customers.

With NZ Compare collating opinions and votes from Kiwis across the country, the shortlisting process has been robust. The finalists represent a diverse range of businesses and organisations across the telecommunications and energy sector, from smaller rural specialists to national players.

Commenting on the finalists, NZ Compare CEO Gavin Male said, “The finalists for the People’s Choice Awards always serve up a diverse range and it is really interesting to see those providers who have a smaller customer base really able to mobilize their customers to vote. I think that just highlights the closer relationship and the value that relationship has to both customer and provider. It is great to see such a diverse range of finalists and surprising to see some of the really big providers miss out on the finals, even with the number of customers they have.”

The winners of the People’s Choice Awards, as well as the other nineteen categories, will be announced at the much-anticipated awards ceremony, hosted by Mike McRoberts and taking place at the Hunua Rooms in Auckland on November 30 th 2023.

We wish all of the finalists the very best of luck.
