I had an ad pop up for this company on Facebook. At a glance, looks like something a lot of GZ'ers would like. Pricing also looks fairly competitive.


 




 


I have no endorsement from these people, just to be clear.

Visibility of ONT diagnostics is unusual.

They say no hidden cost when the hidden cost is the setup fee

Certainly an interesting offer. They don't offer static v6 allocations at this stage though.

@cws82us If it is hidden how did you see it?

So I reached out to them on Facebook to ask some more in-depth questions:

 

 

 

As for upstream / pops:

 

"Yep we have 3 Auckland PoPs we're in, so plenty of diversity there. We upstream through Cogent (AS174), Anycast (AS58511), AKL-IX, MegaIX AKL, CHC-IX, NSW-IX Sydney, EdgeIX Sydney and Equinix IX Sydney"

 

 

 

And some screenshots of the "ONT Diagnostics" (lots more under "How can I check the health & status of my connection & ONT?"):

their offering is tempting, for the 300/100 service we have gone to $90.

 

As it is holiday accomodation, this might be a suitable replacement for current, thanks for sharing @ssamjh!

Sounds a lot like Bigpipe used to be, back in the day.

@hsvhel $79 a month with 2degrees (with on account mobile) + $200 credit or $89 a month (with no on account mobile) +200 credit

 

Should work out cheaper over 12 months and with 6 months free Neon and Prime Video

I'm honestly thinking I might give this a go. I'll have to wait a month for the 30-day cancellation period with Voyager. If I try then, I'll report back.

Did the same research and totally missed your post - doesn't look like they're part of WISPA NZ, but they're a WISP too. Curious to hear if anyone has any experience with them, their website and status page seem decent but that doesn't mean a ton.





Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

I think I'm going to try them, so I'll be the guinea pig and report back.

looks like they have invested in some good APIs with the LFCs to self check stuff usually only made available to RSPs
