enozkeeg: Who are you with now? TheCloud sound good, another thing that snots me about TCL is if you go over you get charged another chunk for data - say 40 GB for 30 bucks or whatever it is even if you only have a day or two left on the monthly which you then lose when it ticks over, this I think is a damn dirty trick.

I need to look at UFB as well they have it installed in our neighbourhood


Im still with thecloud until Telstra churn me to them on the $75 plan. My phone company was Telecom, and my first choice for a change (for more bandwidth was Telecom but they would not negotiate a deal approaching TC.

DonGould: Al, Al, Al.... where to start...

Can but learn. Will be interesting how good the 3 free months will be. Certainly cant complain at the price.
The Chorus man should have been better informed - I guessed since he is mostly working for Telecom he would have promoted them, but that was not the case at all.

I did see the thread on Telstraclear Tauranga problems and from many other folks all complaining, but the complaints were pretty consistent on all ISP except Telecom.
regards,
Al.


3months?

I was told you could get 3 months free from Smelstra if you had your own kit. I found this out by going into new customers line by mistake, as soo as I said I was existing I had to talk to a different team. Still waiting for my callback from Sales and Retentions on this sounds like I might be jumping providers. There must be something else out there, I hear good things about Snap.

Got a mailer in the post today offering Telecom Broadband to new customers with 2 months free on a 12 month plan with 30Gb free, and home phone for $85.  Includes free calling to telecom mobiles.  And includes free wireless modem.

Sounds very similar to TC's package.  And the same early termination fee of $199.
