Hi,

Just having a look at the KiwiVoIP page this morning and I wanted to find out what experience people have had with them both as a VoIP provider and as a DSL provider? Obviously I mostly want to know about the 3 big pain points - speed, reliability and customer service.

Regards,
Chris.

Yea might as well go directly to 2Talk. You will be NAT'd on their DSL product unless you pay for a public address. There VoIP stuff is great though. Low cost, easy to set up an account. Never bothered with their built in features as always trunk them to a PABX. I wouldn't bother with KiwiVoIP unless you want them to do the work for you and pay a premium.

2talk have introduced DSL connections called "2talk Access". its a DSL connection only designed to connect to them and their services. It does not provide general internet until you take some of the higher plans. 


More info on their webpage https://www.2talk.co.nz/access/

2Talk Access would be fine for 'general' internet. Things would only start not working when you tried VPNs, mail servers, VoIP from other providers etc. But i think the whole point of it was to get the user inside their network meaning they can QoS the voice side of things.

Thanks for the info. 2talk is another provider we are looking at as I was looking at the list of 3cx certified providers. As they are simply a reseller I'll give them a miss I think.

GM
