I'm considering switching to Voyager specifically the 100/20 which will increase to 200/20 still for $79 per month(at least for ChCh).

 

How does the "REFERRAL CODE" on their website work?

 

Can I still get a static ip for a one off cost of $14.95?

 

I'm presently with 2degrees and they confirmed they will also do the speed increase for those on the appropriate plans. I'm happy with them but don't like relying on having to have my mobile with them to secure a better price.

 

Bigpipe said they won't increase 100/20 to 200/20 in an email reply. Skinny never responded to the question regarding passing on the speed increase from Enable(may try again).

 

Any other feedback to help me make a decision would be greatly appreciated.

If you are with an ISP and it's working with no issues and you are happy with them why change?

What benefit are you going to get moving from 2degrees?

There's a good chance I may stay where I am...as long as the speed increase happens.

Yes I did but I'm a lot more confident when there is a public statement as opposed to a lone email :)

So keep the email and stay with ISP you are happy with and is working for you

@2degreescare might even be able to add some value to your question

At the present time, my vote is for InspireNet.

 

I get IPV6, consistent performance and a good help desk if I ever need it. For any curly issue the NOC is accesible, which is more than what can be said for most other players.

 

$85 per month for "flat rate" (which they define as up to 3Tb) VDSL2.

 

Maybe I could get it $10 cheaper elsewhere but I'm happy to pay the extra and not have the hassles.

Static IP is still a one-off of $15 (or $14.95), and can be added during sign up. If you know someone on Voyager, they'll have a referral code you can enter, if you'd like one for the sign up, I can nab mine for you, just let me know.

 

I've personally been with them on VDSL for a couple of months now, and have been very pleased with their service, and the speed at which they replied to tickets. They also offer IPV6 if you are after that.

So does the referral code give a discount/credit to both parties?

I just had a look for one, and honestly couldn't find one, so I apologize, I thought I had seen on previously. Maybe someone else has one, I must have been thinking of from elsewhere, sorry about that.

Heya @LittleDude

 

The referral code is currently used for promotions etc - not for customer/friends bonuses etc .... well, not yet anyway.
We're currently running Free standard installation promo at the moment ... no code required! :P

 

Static IP's - YES - there's an option when you sign up. $14.95 one off cost.
As @Taubin also stated, we can do IPv6 for free also if you desire.

 

If you need anymore info, let me know - happy to help.

I can do that but I would just like to repeat for anyone reading this thread that 2degrees have been great and have confirmed the speed increase. I don’t want 2degrees response confused with Bigpipe who don’t seem to care about present and potential customers going by my brief communication with them.

I am confused as to what you are on about. Are you trolling 2 degrees, when they are a good ISP?
