Do we need to rent the cable modem or can we buy it?

I *think* this is Clear's Cable ADSL, only available in areas where Clear has its own cable run. Not available over a wide area of NZ if thats the case.

Also, if it is Cable access, you have to use their modem/router.
You would have a hard job trying to buy a Cable router/modem anyway, as there is no demand (apart from Clear buying them)

Those prices exclude GST

I am of the understanding that it is only on offer to business customers in the CBD of the three main cities.

This is what you need to look at, Paradise high speed internet:

$77 for 256Kbps, 10GB, per month.

get the phoneline/256k package and save twenty bucks!
and its 10GB, not freck'n 0.5MB - thats like a diff of twenty fold.

Is this Tempest 256K?

I believe they allowed Residential into this, I know it changed not so long ago, problem is you have to be within Clear's (Telstra's) Network. Unfortunately I wasn't but they said they'll be sure to let me know when it gets here. As I can foresee it, it will never come.

And it's unlimited too.

I actually wanted this service so I could run a server on it, since they give you a static IP and their terms allow it, but because I wasn't in their network, well you know...
