Hi All

I have some friends moving to; Bluff Hill Napier

They are currently looking for an ISP that can give them,

A Phone line - Just use it for basic things like nation wide calling to the south island and auckland, like any home phone,
Internet -  Not big uses of it 30gb would be plenty, they use it for small things like email and flash games

Any recommendations?

Cheers





I'm going to noob myself past judgement

Any of the national ISPs should be fine.

Pretty sure Bluff Hill is UFB ready too, but for small usage and needing a normal phone, Telecom will be as good as any ($75 will get them 30GB and a phone line I think).

NOW (nownz.co.nz) is local.  Looks like all their plans (http://nownz.co.nz/home.html) have free 1 hour national toll calls, too.
