Hi
I have just got a email from woosh saying that i have exceeded my data usage and thus my speed will dropped to 56 whats worst is that the current line speed is not even 56k its 35k although i have full signal and quality. iam so badly stuck with this ISP, i have to stay with them for 1 year or else pay 100 bucks. I was looking at orcons no data cap 50$ plan sounds good better than this garbage ISP.

yes woosh is rubbish, essentially it isrun on a cellphone network, unlike say wired country which is true wireless using microwave transmitters, i suggest you pay the $100 (because, face it, you are going to have to keep paying the monthly charge which adds up to more than $100), stop downloading so much porn and warez, and get say jetstream or wired country

It might be worth a look to check the fine print on the signup documents. If they are not delivering what was promised the threat of a trip to the small claims court might get you off the $100 at the least. Its a very shabby trick changing the rules after the game has started.

Think twice about Orcon.
Judging by recent threads and experiences, they've turned rubbish too.

If not Orcon then which one, i couldnt find how much weird country charges on their web. I just want an ISP with no data or speed cap.

If you want no limits on your usage be prepared to pay through the nose for your priviledge, and stop moaning about the excellent service provided by Woosh.

Hmmmm. I don't have a problem with Orcon.
I had problems with Telecom - Xtra getting my phone line ADSL enabled.

I'm with Orcon.

I have Xtra jetstream it is rubbish. 1G cap lasts about 10 days it was a real bastard to set up. It had the worst installation instructions I have ever read, worse than some of those badly written Nationalist and Communist chinese instructions you get with stuff from Warehouse.
I might be at the distance limits from my closest exchange but its not really that fast. When they cut it back to dial speed I hardly notice.
I hope that Gatling chick gets fired soon and they sort broadband out.

Woosh has excellant advantages to those who travel with a laptop, but i am yet to understand why those who connect at a fixed semipermanant address would even consider them!

Well Holdens suck... Fords suck..... Catholics suck... Labour sucks.... National sucks..... AMD sucks..... Intel sucks..... Microsoft sucks..... Dell sucks..... IBM sucks....... Nvida sucks.... Telecom sucks..... Telstra sucks.... Whoosh sucks.... Orcon sucks and etc and ad nuaseam.

If I listen to a number of people even this forum sucks.

We should all be running a version of Linux but which one and will the hardware you have work with Linux?

Please note that everyone here has the right to spend their money where they want.

I just called up woosh because even though they put me back to dial up my line speed is way slower than dialup, they replied me by saying we dont really specify the speed bla bla bla.
Iam so dipressed coz of this. :-(

Gee gum digger - why do you suppose that someone satisfied with a service must work for them? Perhaps you've never been satisfied with anything.

For the record, I have no connection with Woosh other than as a customer.

And also, I use the service mainly on a laptop around Auckland, and made sure I had everything correctly installed. Of course I also use the service on a desktop from time to time.

I'm still satisfied.

Because you cant or wont read you abuse the supplier.

Woosh express is a good deal.

When you signed your contract you new you had a 1 gb cap.

Now you have a 1gb cap with unlimited dial up speed usage afterwards at no xtra charge.

Where have the rules been changed to your detriment????????????

If high speed downloading is so important, buy extra highspeed data, which you can do at reasonable rates.

Or go back to being ripped by TELESCAM.

The choice is yours.

Interesting to note that the woosh pmcia card for laptop is 1/3rd the cost of the vodaphone unit.

In the long term wired country is probably the way to go, but the entry level, and monthly costs are still prohibitive to many at this point.

well i dont know what is bothering you gum digger, i would rather be capped than have a massive bill at the end of the month.

i think im going to go woosh when it comes to my part of southland, only becuase it is cheap and that it will be the only way i can get broadband.....
