Hey,

 


So my current contract with spark is up next month (no way im sticking with them after that and their prices go up by a crazy amount).

So looking at my options and curious about Skinny. I've always been wary of the budget stuff, but have had great success with skinny mobile plans. How has everyones experience been with skinny for internet? Im currently on a fibre connection in CHCH, 100down, 20up. Mainly just use it for PSN, Steam, Netflix, browsing etc, some VPN for my wifes work and a bit of torrenting. Any foreseeable issues?

I've currently got my current modem bridged to extend the wifi across my house and set up NAT2.

 


Any feedback would be awesome! Thanks.

Skinny are fine but use CGNAT. If you don't want that, look at Voyager or Bigpipe with a static IP.

 

 

 

Edit - I should say Voyager have public IPs, Bigpipe use CGNAT but you can buy a static with a one off cost.

I'm not super clear on what CGNAT is. Is that going to pose a problem for the things I use? Traditionally i've been on NAT 2, is CGNAT more closed than NAT 2?
