good discussion so far.


What do you guys think about the faster upload options?

Is it worth paying potentially around $20 more per month to go from   100/20   to 100/100?

What would you do with the extra upload bandwidth?

Maintain ratio and do cloud backups. But I have about a 800 gig buffer so not too much need for seeding at the moment.

I think 100/50 is more than fine.  The biggest bottleneck is the international speed?  So why would you want to pay anymore when you are getting the same international speeds?

Most of the cloud services are all hosted off shore.. dropbox, Office 365, Google drive, Xero..

Would you be offering a static ip address with your plans?

I wouldn't pay $20 for more upload bandwidth.  I'd consider paying $20 for more upload *and* download bandwidth.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

ild certainly consider it, my upload usage is bursty for the most part, often involving uploading 100MB maps to multiple people at once.

would possibly even consider sharing a few important linux distros at home rather than on my external machines given enough legroom ;)

I'd be keen on some middle of the road options 100/50 for slightly less

I think 100/20 for the proposed $79 per month is great value and I'd be a starter.  Not looking for anything else.  How long before Big Pipe starts offering this or some other variation?

depends on a bunch of things (some of which outside our control), so no promises yet, but hopefully July/August
