About Compass


We are a 100% kiwi-owned, independent internet and telecommunications service provider, started in 1995. That makes our brand one of the longest-tenured players in today’s telco market. We have a true entrepreneurial spirit where we can quickly adapt to market trends and changing customer demands. Our shareholders are active in the business and passionate for its success.

We have invested heavily to have our own nationwide network. We combine this capability with a skilled technical support team, based in New Zealand. We have people who are experts in their fields and understand the Kiwi consumers completely. The combination of our internal capabilities and our strategic partnerships allow us to provide our customers with the latest in telecom technology.

Our portfolio of products includes Broadband connections with landline through High-Speed Fibre for New Zealand homes and businesses. We also provide broadband through VDSL and ADSL networks and can provide internet to rural and remote parts of NZ.

Our business portfolio includes voice support services, Fibre broadband services, Cloud PBX, all-in-one managed services and a data centre.

For the Group CEO of Compass Communications, Karim Hussona, it’s been a remarkable ride from uni-graduate in the UK to respected entrepreneur and business leader in New Zealand, heading an enterprise with 100-plus staff and turnover of around $70 million. Read more about his journey here.
