I only left Xnet because my data needs are growing and they didn't have anything to compete with the current TCL and Slingshot bundle offers. I am regretting making that decision now. I didn't need the modem but didn't think about trading it for no contract term :(
I don't know how the contract would work without a fixed term because the 40GB free data per month is only for the term of the contract?
Interesting that your bandwith issues appear not to be international capacity related if they are to the speedtest server at WxC [unless TCL are routing off shore and back...], maybe your problem is localised to the backhaul from your local exchange or cabinet
I agree, Xnet are no longer competitive for my needs either. With Telecom [TCNZ] $85 homeplan one gets 30GB but without the 12 month contract I don't get the 2 months free or the modem. It appears no one complains of TCNZ's peak speeds. The Telstra deal is better by $10 a month and 10GB more data. Without the contract and its 2 months free I am still $150 off better per annum with TCNZ than Xnet
Can anyone advise of TCL Wgtn ADSL performance issues ? [in fact it should be good in Wgtn since most of their Wgtn customers will on the TCL cable DOCIS network ?]
