Currently looking at getting off Spark ADSL and onto a nice fibre plan. I need to keep some form of my current landline, thus far, I'm either choosing between Spark's $130 a month, landline + fibre 100/20 (with installation fee) or Stuff Fibre's $125, giga plan + voice app (no contract/free installation).

 

I'm leaning towards Stuff Fibre and I'm wondering if there is anybody who has experience with their services. I really don't want people theorizing or dissing their service based on how bad they see Fairfax's clickbait. Thanks.

Whilst I have no experience with actually using Stuff it is still personal preference but what I've seen so far is not that great. To be perfectly honest if you want a reliable ISP look at Spark, BigPipe, Voyager (not specifically in that order) and from experience stay away from My Republic. Also, don't get roped in to those free deals like TV's and gaming consoles.

Yeah, that's where my Googling has landed me as well. I think we'll get it and cancel if the service turns out crap, after all, it's no contract and without an installation fee. Will report back results once I get it installed.

I'm with stuff fibre, no problems. On 100/20 plan and seem to get full speed most of the time, though I don't really download much except from steam/origin/b.net.

 

the included asus router is pretty decent too.

I can vouch for unlimitedinternet, I'm on a 100/20 plan, I get 89-95Mb down and always 20Mb upload solid.

 

 

 

Plus its only $70 per month. I'm sure you can add voip to it if needed.
