I'm not sure where to start this thread.

Is anybody getting power from Trustpower and broadband (unlimited) from Kinect? Any feedback on either?

If I recall correctly Kinect is a virtual ISP using Maxnet's platform, so performance should be very good for regular plans.

I see they are offering an unlimited plan, no idea how tight the traffic management would be on that one.

I am on maxnet and recently I notice slower speed and poor performance at times. I wonder if this is related to kinect offering.

My parents use the 3 in 1 service (Trustpower for power and Kinect for phone + internet). It seems pretty decent to me, although they are on a limited data plan where the MB are supposed to carry over into other months, but after looking at their plan and their broadband usage and seeing their limits I'm certain its not working correctly.
