    Unless you're on Orcon or Slingshot, I wouldn't.

    I presume its the vodafone adsl from their web site, with national call and sky discount bundled in.

    I put the parents on it about 5 years ago, it's been fine. Good speeds, decent enough cap for the $ etc.

    I've got my wifes cousin with them on Naked DSL on their last-gen modem. Speeds *blow* even though she's syncing at 15mbps
    Then there's some family friends syncing at 12mbps on their latest generation modem, again they max out around 4mbps...

    I have other friends with different ISP's on the same cabinets (I've got a lot of mates in the area) who all obtain significantly faster speeds. Router / modem or ISP, I don't know for certain, but given the hassles I've personally had in the past with Vodafone after they took over Ihug, I wouldn't go back there.

    I won't go back to telecom due to the monopoly they had, wouldn't allow texting between their network and others, joining yahoo and plenty more
