techmeister: 2talks, service has been rock solid for 6 months now, since the new 2talk+ service.
networkn just has an issue with 2talk, 2degrees, anything with 2 in it.

Do they use Callplus for their broadband offerings?
I would interested to know.


I've clearly outlined my reasons for the issues I have with those 2 companies, and they are fair and reasonable issues in my opinion.

Interesting how many of the plans have a "2talk secure IP", I assume that means you're behind NAT?

Why would it mean that? It probably means you are assigned a static address and your account is locked down to that.


See the difference between the ADSL saver, ADSL basic and ADSL extra: saver is listed as having a "2talk secure IP", basic is "Public IP: add $10", and extra is "Includes public IP address", suggesting that a 2talk secure IP is not a public IP address.  If it's not a public IP address then it's extremely likely that you're going to be behind NAT.

Or VLAN or something like that.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their ADSL broadband network faster. Why not spend a couple of hundred to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I asked, they use Chorus for connections.
The secure IP is an IP allocated internally by 2talk and cannot be reached from external sources.
So making it a very secure connection for end users which I guess gives 2talk end to end control of their phone service and security.
Sounds like a good option to me, but no good if you want to run a server or remote desktop or similar.
This must be very similar to how Ubernet did their wireless broadband connections.




Now on Slingshot Better Network and it's better.

No problem but things do change over time and sometimes for the better.

300GB VDSL for 125.00 a month?  Seems pretty good to me.





Sometimes what you don't get it a blessing in disguise!

It's actually $143.75 once you add on GST.  
And you must have a business calling plan to get that VDSL plan.

Well that's true, but my experiences are less than 12 months old, plus I have seen others complaining of service issues much more recently.

Our voice system is semi-private and our VOIP service is only allowed on-network but nothing about our connections stop you running RDP or services behind it




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Sounds like carrier grade NAT. I don't see anything wrong with that unless you want a public IP then of course extra wants comes with extra costs noting is free in this world Cool

Yeaaaaah, It's not CGN - Dont please make comments like this about our service. Every single client gets a static IP direct on the CPE that is public and open. NO CGN, NO NAT, port forwarding works just fine

Ah sorry, I got that wrong, there was a public IP address, it was just you could not access the Router/aerial
yourself to forward ports, had to get Ubernet to do it.
Might have changed by now though.
I do apologise.
