Hi there everyone

Well today I got my first Xnet invoice covering a full month under the new torrent plan. I must say I am very happy. When I got fusion back in January I was saving between $20 and $25 a month and when torrent plan came along I jumped in on that too. Between January and last month my bills ranged from $105 to $113 a month but the invoice I got today $85.75 so once again a big thankyou to Xnet team.

Yeah big ups to the Xnet team Laughing
I maybe paying slightly more than my old ISP, but what Im getting is a lot more as well, try getting a similar deal from certain other ISPs and say hello to $120+ bills each month.

Time for me to get onto Fusion and save even more Tongue out

Also if I may add, that the Torrent plan is great news for the rest of us as well, because it moves a lot (if not most) of the heavy traffic into the period when we don`t need the bandwidth, so everyone`s happy.

My bill came down from ~$79/month to ~$52/month. It's really great saving. My only complaint is my slow speed during off-peak. At that speed, I couldn't even watch YouTube smoothly, and I can only use a bit more than 30GB of free data per month. I remember I used to be able to reach ~60GB per month last year while I was with another ISP, however speed gradually slowed down over the months, and the situation hasn't improved even though I'm now using Xnet.

Yeah you`re right, even before midnight, speed can get very poor for ADSL 2+.  Hopefully it`s not gonna stay like this.
