Privately Owned Datacentre
At HD we own and operate our own state of the art Datacentre right here on Auckland’s North Shore, meaning we can monitor and address any faults 24/7/365.
Flexible, Customised Services
From custom built broadband services to complex IT infrastructures, our enthusiastic and experienced staff take pride in designing innovative, high performance solutions to fit your needs.

HD is one of New Zealand’s leading privately owned and operated ISPs specialising in Internet Services, Telecommunications, Cloud and Datacentre Services.

We understand that our customers want services that they can rely on & in order to achieve this, we take extensive measures to ensure that all products & services not only meet the requirements of our clients, but also have the redundancy and scalability to consistently exceed them.
Dedicated High Quality Bandwidth means, unlike most other ISPs, we don’t oversell bandwidth to keep costs down. This practice inevitably slows networks and leads to costly downtime for the end user. Instead, we dedicate specific bandwidth allocations to each of our customers, ensuring consistently high performance.
