 This seems to be the only comparison site:http://www.telme.org.nz/ (although wasn't that much use to me)

So anyway, after much digging around and thought over a few hours I've created these as the choices:

http://www.slingshot.co.nz/internet
Naked Broadband Unlimited, $90/month
(initially my reaction was to AVOID when I saw "unlimited", however it appears to be on Geekzone the reaction to those who signed up has been very positive. However, it is very early days... only been available for a few weeks. Thus I'm sitting on the fence about this one unless somebody makes it clearer)

http://www.orcon.net.nz/external/genius/campaigns_landing_genius.php
Example cost: 40gig/month @ $95
A positive in their favour: http://www.orcon.net.nz/home/page/o_zone hmmm.... although they don't count TVNZonDemand any longer which was a big plus for me,http://www.orcon.net.nz/about/article/o_zone_-_a_few_changes

http://www.snap.net.nz/home/package/naked
Example cost: 35gig/month @ $60
A positive in their favour: unlimited free youtube for only an extra $2/month

http://www.vodafone.co.nz/naked-broadband/ultimate-naked.jsp
Ultimate Naked, 60gig/month @ $95
A positive in their favour: "you can double your data to 120GB for an additional $30.60, either as a one-off if you just need a bit more for the month or ongoing if you want to always have the extra data."

http://www.compass.net.nz/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=72&Itemid=96
40 GB Broadband $76.95 per month
60 GB Broadband $96.95 per month

http://www.worldnet.co.nz/personal/nakeddsl/
Example cost: 40gigs/month @ $69


So which plan?! Any positive or negatives I left out which should be highlighted?

I have Vodafone Ideal Naked 20GB and pay $45 per month.

Vodafone offers a significant discount to Naked if you have a phone connection on contract with them as well. It doesn't even have to be under your name.

I'm in Red Zone too for another discount.

My bad! Snap updates the page with the total cost but I must've had the page reload at some point as it is 35gig/month for $85

I saw the vodafone discount for on account, but my vodafone is a prepaid that I never use now and my other phone is a two degrees that I just buy data and txt packs for.
