You guys have probably seen like 2000 of these threads after telecom decided to eliminate their bigtime plan where 80% of New Zealanders are drowned in sorrow.
I just want to ask is there a reliable Isp out there which provides at least 80GB a month for a price around 100 dollars? I have looked around i found Nznet but i haven't heard anyone use it before, and Xnet which is pay per GB. Its a family of 4 moderate usage so around 80-100gb a month is fine, telecom's 40gb just doesn't cut it. Any suggestions would be awesome, im in auckland if there is relevance.

Thanks for the help

:thanks

80-100GB in NZ is definitely heavy usage.

Xnet would be one of your only affordable option, but see my other thread.

On Naked DSL that would cost $150/month.

My mate said in 60 days he did about 360gb

That is quite a bit of money, i've found some not so known isp which seem to offer very low prices looks really dodgy, e.g worldnet i goggles them and all i found were complaints they were ignorant.

Although why the hell you'd need 100Gb beats me, unless you pirate a lot.

Professional DSL Max/128k 100GB free $79.95

This is the plan i was going to go for on nznet i think i might need to take one for the team on this one, just couldn't find a review of em. The price looks right and the disconnection fee is only $99 so not much.

Cause we are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers (gamers, tvnz ondemand etc) we use heaps

i got told slingshot is very slow, is it a true fact? I have dealt with their customer service reps before and they were one of the worst i've had to deal with

Yeah I'd steer clear of Slingshot / Xnet at the moment to be honest. Snap are quite good in my limited experience, otherwise you could go naked with Orcon?

We deal a lot with Snap down here and they are pretty good - all their shareholders live in the SI which is good, if you are in the SI they are as close to a locally owned ISP as you can get.
