    Default Telecom versus Vodafone Homeline and adsl broadband

    Been with Telecom for years but as they dropped sky and have no other incentives for me I'm seriously thinking of moving to Vodafone mainly ( I know I'm easily bought ) because they offer mysky hd for free. I'm presuming the broadband will be pretty similar speed wise, reliability etc. Right or wrong ?

    Have no idea haven't been with telecom. Don't think I've been with telecom, since I've been on broadband (only for the phone a while ago). VF is good enough for me at the mo. Was going to go on VF's $85 plan I think it was in Dec, which inc Sky.

    But, decided to go for the $85 or something - 100 GB plan instead, with free toll calls for a year

    And the VF plan in Dec didnt inc any channels on Sky. It was separate. You got the decoder for free, but you still have to pay for the basic package. So it was 85+ the price for the basic package on top of that

    Telecom are not to good at a lot of things. Theres a very high percentage of the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

    A customer on mine tried to get telecom BB after KOL discontinued (her phones with Telecom), according to telecom they couldn't get high speed at the location ?? Its right in the middle of the town. Called Vodafone / Telstra and they confirmed no problems at all.

    Telecom had email probs not so long ago. And according to their FB page, looks like they've had outages about an hr ago

    Thanks to everyone in the upper North Island region for being so patient while our techs worked to sort out today's broadband outage, and we're sorry for the disruption to your day

    I'm with Telecom for many years, other than their email issues, very happy with them.

    Sorry I disagree.
    Vodafone are the pits.

    I was with Telecom, moved to Ihug, that got bought by Vodafone, at which point it all disintegrated.
    I won't list the things that happened, I've done that before - but I ended up changing back to Telecom and there I will stay.
    wipe your paws.
