Hi
I'm considering switching from Xtra 60GB Pro to Slingshot 100Gb bundle primarily because of the lower costs. Here in Christchurch I get consistent speeds with Xtra but I'm finding 60GB just isn't enough. I don't play games so ping times are not important but I download torrents so international speeds are more relevant. I'd be happy with 500KB/s for torrents as long as I could comfortably surf and download files etc at the same time. Can any Slingshot users share or comment on their speeds at "peak times" on the capped plans? And/or anything else worth mentioning to help me make up my mind.
Thanks

My advice would to simply read the last 10 or so threads in this forum and form your own opinion.

Perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned that but I'm pretty sure that the AYCE plan is designed with that in mind . Let's face it, the ISPs are quite happy to take the business until Hollywood comes knocking.
