I am shortly moving to a new property which, as luck would have it, is connected to UFB. Current residents who are the owners have Orcon.
I have read the posts here on GZ which were useful.
It seems to me my options are:
(1) Orcon (have looked at their Genius plan, 80GB, 100/50Mbit, fixed IP, VOIP calling) $125 a month, doesnt say you can port current phone number but I assume I can, free wireless modem
(2) Inspire (have looked at 100GB. VOIP calling, 100/50Mbit) also $125 a month. Doesn't say whether fixed IP available or not. Also unclear if modem/router provided from my initial readover.
Anyway, I currently use Roku over TCL using Unblock-US, occasionally video conference for work etc. I use static IP mostly to make it easier to get access to my home NAS and systems to be honest as I am not overly network savvy. Interested if there are any likely pitfalls with Roku in particular by swapping over.
I want to retain my current email with TCL as have been with them for ages and its a pain in the posterior to changeover to a new ISP's addresses. I am not waiting for them to deploy UFB here in Whanganui though.
Just interested in your views of the two providers whether in Whanganui or elsewhere in NZ and who you would go with and why?
