I'm moving out of home on Sunday (Finally :thumbs:) & I need to have some form of internet available.
I don't need Broadband type speeds, Dial up would be fine, Just to check my email, chat on MSN & browse the odd web page.

I'm moving into a flat with no land line.
In New Plymouth, Banks Street Which is 1-2Km SW from the center of the City.

I looked at using my cell as a modem but it was 0.6 cents per 100 Byte packets.
Which works out to be 60c a KB? which seems extravagant.

Does anyone have any suggestion's on what I could use for internet?

Also When is Naked DSL coming out? As I could get a phone line installed & just get a basic broadband plan.
I thought it was meant to be out round about now but the Business pages in the Herald(?) a week or so ago makes me think Telecon is still trying to slow it all down.



As usual, I am extremely grateful for any help provided



P.S Not sure where or if it's needed but, I have a desktop computer with WinXP home, I have a wireless ...card installed in the computer.

P.P.S on another side note anyone know of a decent/quiet icafe in NP if all else fails :stare:

You could try Vodafone's 3g: http://vodafone.co.nz/pricing_plans/broadband.jsp


Otherwise I don't think you'll have a choice but to pay for line rental, and get dialup (or ADSL).
