    Default NzNet Broadband- Review

    I posted a topic before asking if anyone has tried nznet, didn't really see anyone that have used it, so i decided to take the plunge and try it out cancellation fee is only 99 dollars or so not too much.

    The website isn't best website i've seen but once i got use to it, its simple and easy to navigate. I called up asking for quote the lady behind the phone was very friendly and very informative she knew what she was selling which was a + for me. Sent me an email with all the information i needed and the forms i had to fill out.
    We did run into a little hiccup with emails and such won't really get into it, but sorted out really really quickly.
    As i was telecom before the bigger monthly quota and low pricing was what attracted me to try nznet, they were very quick in getting me my connection, they even organized it to happen 1day before my telecom plan renews which made it easier on me, although my net was down for 2 hours from around 7am-9am, it was back up fairly quick.
    Now onto the speed, admittedly it is not as fast as telecom however the speeds is fairly consistent and you don't feel the drop in speed at "peek" hours, youtube buffers fairly quickly, i get speeds of 300kb+ from gamershell and other sites like rapidshare, onto online gaming, there is little to no lag issues i don't get spikes either, you do gain around 5 more ping than telecom but nothing to really cry about (around 90ping on aus severs). At the end of the day im paying 90 dollars for 100gb with decent speeds, i've only used it for 2 weeks so far but i don't regret trying this at all.
    This is just my 2cent you might have had a different experience but from what i have seen i can recommend nznet.
    And no i don't work for them nor do i get a discount for writing this, or do i?
    Anyways thought i would just contribute to this community.

    It'll vary largely depending on what exchange you're attached to, and how far from the exchange you are.

    Personally I know I get 3.9m/bit pretty much every time I do a speedtest (It sometimes varies a tiny, tiny little bit), because I'm around 2KM from the Exchange. My parents however who are about 1.5KM closer to the exchange get a solid 13m/bits every single time ...

    OK .. my thoughts on speedtest & pingtest ... why test from a server that's only 50miles away when much of the time you'll be looking at US, UK or other overseas sites ???

    I'm on a capped rate but seems to be pretty stable at 3.5Mbs even at 7100miles

    Is it worth comparing apples with apples .... otherwise someone living 200 mtrs away from a box and server is going to have a distinct advantage I would have thought.

    Just having a look at their site, so do they supply to domestic houses or is it for business only as naked DSL at $125 for 100Gb seems way cheaper than anyone else at domestic level

    These guys are looking pretty good to me at the moment;

    Just got a quote back from them;

    Premium DSL package ,phone + ADSL2+ connection at fullspeed up and down (100GB of data)

    If you have your own router and can re-configure it yourself you only need to pay NZ$99.99+GST. They are even nice enough to tell you not to cancel your account with your current provider until they have connected you so that you don't have to pay the NZ$145.00 connection fee.

    I asked a few more questions, once I get a reply I will post back.

    Cheers,
