mr_shady:

 

Well most of the bad feedback seems to be based on the owners previous venture and apparent trolling on here going back years ago (couldn't really find much info on it just that things hit the fan) and not on the actual ISP itself actually all on the comments I've read from people who've tried the ISP itself are all positive. 

 

 

 

 

Lorenceo:

 

What are international speeds like?

 

 

 

 

How do I check that? Been trying speedtest and have been averaging around 20mbps down keep in mind this is on my laptop on opposite corner of the house from the router, haven't tried over ethernet cable yet. 

 

 

 

 

Just wondering what site you have found your ISP feedback on. I hadn't heard of this ISP before, but am looking at different options as my current contract is soon to run out. 

 

 

 

 

Pretty much all the feedback I found was on here and gpforums there was one really helpful thread but I can't seem to find it now..

VDSL is certainly a nice upgrade from ADSL when it is available at your house. So Unlimitedinternet = reselling Hd Net

Ive been with them for about a year now I guess.  $59 a month for unlimited ADSL2+, all i can get at my house, so my opinion is based only on that speed.

 

For $59 a month i think theyre bloody brilliant, same speed i was getting on bigpipe.  I thought my internet was going slower after switching from snap at first, but they sorted it somehow and now on steam downloads i average around 1.2-1.3MB/s and peak out at 1.4MB/s.

I would be keen to see there international speed. (You can choose an overseas server using the new server button). I recently changed from 2degrees to Sinch. Their customer support may be better, but their international speed sucks very badly in the evening (about 1Mb/s or less! download), where as I was getting 10Mb/s with 2degrees.

Omg look at these speeds! Is this for real? :O

I've just joined their 30/10 fibre plan. Purely on pricing and no terms or contract.

@reven It was actually your comments that convinced me to take the plunge, thanks man so glad I did! :D 

 

 

 

I look these between 9-9:30pm tonight speeds varied quite a bit between servers and locations as shown in the big difference between the 2 perth servers. UK had the worst speeds averaging 5mbps yet Europe where a fair bit higher so I'm not sure how accurate these are or if these speeds are considered 'good' for VDSL? Would those ping speeds be considered on the high side? I should mention that I've been doing a lot of HD streaming including during peak hours and haven't had a problem.
