I am moving at the end of the month.At present I am on telstra cable which unfortunately is unavailable.(10 mins walk from where I am now in Christchurch)I do a lot of online gaming and looking for advice on what online connection to go for.

ADSL2+ or VDSL2 would be the options (though few providers offer the latter yet, and not all cabinets support it yet) through your preferred ISP. Downstream is comparalbe to Telstra's LightSpeed cable plans, upstream is not quite as good, but more than enough to support online gaming (unless there's a dozen of you trying to play on the same connection).

Hey mate,
Give Orcon a try on their Genius plans. They're pretty decent! :D
