Some of my friends say I should use Orcon (http://www.orcon.co.nz), others have suggested 02.net (http://02net.co.nz). I've tried searching for user reviews for the two ISPs but found none. Can anyone who use them tell me whether they're good or not?

Have a look here at a few comments on orcon:

You can get a 5GB or a 15 GB cap with orcon as well.

Also Quicksilver - http://www.quicksilver.co.nz is not bad, you get a 10GB cap

I can vouch for Orcon being a good ISP. Ihug (Who I use) are good too.

ICONZ do unlimited data transfer though..... ;-)


Chill.

I started my Jetstart with Paradise, errattic performance expensive.
Then Orcon, terrible performance, very bad latency, but very good help service.

Now I am with Slingshot, only $16.70 a month, unlimited traffic.
Performance excellent and has Xcellorater which speeds up tranmission as an option at about $8 a month.

Mzee, isn't that for dial-up on Slingshot? My jetstart is $29.95 unlimited with Slingshot. Only problem I have had was Telecom software upgrade that turned to custard.
Help ain't flash with Slingshot, just the unlimited availability. Fourth month, and still keeping the average 20gigs/ month. No problems with speed either.

I have just received the bill for the next 3 month period, it is $53.85 = $17.95 per month. maybe they have made a mistake ;-)

P.S. $29.95 is the Telecom charge isn't it?
