Hi all,
Looking for a VDSL provider for a customer. Snap was my first choice (I use them at home), but I wasn't very impressed about the phone rep basically saying POTS breaks VDSL. Been looking around and Kiwilink pricing looks very reasonable. At the end of the day though it will be my neck if the service is bad and service is more important than pricing in this case. So has anyone had a good/bad experience with these guys?

I thought Xnet did VDSL but I couldn't see it on their site. Are there other providers people would recommend?

Can't say I've had an experience with them, but interested to see that their product page says they offer up to 30mb upload (actually they say 30MB, very impressive if true, lol) I thought the way VDSL2 was setup in NZ it was limited to 10mb up?

Yea i saw that and though huh? Doesn't the 17a profile allow for upload around that speed? But even still I thought it was more like 25ish. Their prices are fairly comparable to Snap except you don't get a cheap as chips Fritz!Box

Just hooked up one of my customers to Hosting Direct, so far very impressed.
Prices are quite good too.
