Hi All,

I know everyone will probably say Unotelly is the best and i agree i have had great dealings with Nick from Unotelly.

But as the exchange rate of New Zealand dollar to US dollar dropped i found Unotelly becoming expensive and some of my home customers wanted to look at other options so i searched for other options and found SimpleTelly to be the best IMO

SimpleTelly

Pros:
- Channel Region selection 
- DNS Servers in NZ
- iPhone app for region selection and IP update
- Yearly fee of $30usd
Cons:
- No DynDNS update only via visiting website

Unotelly

Pros:
AWESOME

Cons:
Price due to the NZ dollar
Yearly fee $47.95USD

I know the nature of the exchange is up and down and it's what we have to deal with but it's a low price point this will still be a bargain if exchange rate goes up.

How about dns4me.net

Started by a kiwi based in aussie now.
Supports dyndns.
Allows you to have it running at 3 different in address as well.
Also allows you to set up your own unblocked sites if you have a particular 'odd' sites you Wang to unblock.
Has a couple of other unique features as well as everything you outlined above.
Excellent support as well.

+1 for dns4me, I use that (have used unblockus, unotelly in the past).  price of dns4me makes it very appealing.   speeds are good, has all the netflix regions, had a great android app for easy switching of regions.

Forgot to add the interface for dns4me was much easier to understand than unsteady (I switched because of price) and I think that you may find simpletelly doesn't know about nz sites. This could be a problem if you enable some foreign sites as doing so can disable the nz ones. Unotelly and dns4me warn you about conflicts. If simpletelly don't know about local sites you may wonder why you have broken local content.

Sorry - unsteady was an autocorrect courtesy of my tablet - I meant unotelly. For the record I found found unotelly to be very reliable and helpful while I was a customer.
