We'd like to test some things with our customers too, like our mobile app wireframes, website changes etc, before rolling them out to the 'masses', so we will be contacting some of you over the next couple of weeks to get more feedback on that stuff as well as your experience so far. (that's why you are getting it free until end of march!) 


feel free to contact me when you need someone to test your Windows Phone mobile app...!  (and if you aren't planning on offering one, definitely contact me!)


Yes.. Where is the love for WP7?




Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Leebopsicle: Thought I'd post my experience so far.

Got the email yesterday afternoon that was I eligible to start my trial with BigPipe. (Full speed ADSL - Fast package)
Filled in the application form about 10pm last night.
Received another email this morning at 11am saying "Just quickly. We’ll be hooking up your broadband on 08/01/2014".
Another update at 2:40pm saying I was now connected to BigPipe.

I had Pandora playing the entire time, so either my internet never cut out or it was  so quick that it was <5 minutes due to no pauses with the music playing.

So far I'm extremely pleased with the transition. I never had a problem with my previous ISP (Snap) and wouldn't be leaving them if it weren't for a cheaper offer with BP.


Speeds are fine too



filled mine yesterday morning but got no confirmation date yet.. I hope I will receive this today and get connected by tomorrow (before weekend)..

Like Regs said then, you should really reach out to him.  Especially seeing as he's with Microsoft.  Could potentially have some ideas to make that business decision a bit easier :p

Im very pleased to say that I am happy with BigPipe and can now watch netflix in SuperHD in just few seconds! (with the help of Getflix.com.au) unblock-us unfortunately is having some issues atm - tried doing tracert on both DNS services and unblock is about 26 hops before it reach netflix and high latency while the other one is completed in 15 hops and lower latency.

BigPipe, currently I am getting 22/3 (down/up) with my vdsl - is there any chance you could reset my DSL profile and train again... or maybe something we can do to make my upstream a bit higher? I'm 1KM away from exchange.

Sounds like your issue is simply the fact your so far away from your exchange / cabinet. What is your attenuation by chance?

when I was on ADSL (3 days ago) i get Attn of 8.5/20 (up down) while on VDSL I get attn of 57/22 (up/down).
huge difference on up attn. so that's maybe the reason I only get 3Mb upstream..

Been hooked up to the ADSL plan for about a week now. Not much to say, was connected incredibly quick and it's been just as solid as my old telecom connection so far.
No issues at all.
