Considering moving to Bigpipe from Spark Unplan (constantly going over 120G). Just wondering if the core network is the same as Spark now - lots of international traffic (p2p, voip ,etc).

 

 

Also, is it still on CGNAT - don't mind spending $45 for a static ip if that is still the case.

 

 

Lastly, it seems 2D is offering a good deal at present, not sure if they are good for my usage.

 

 

Thanks.

Wouldn't be proper without a recommendation for your original plan - Bigpipe! ;)

 

Same great network, and the awesome team at Bigpipe.

 

No CGNAT on Bigpipe any more so you can keep that $45 in your pocket if you like!





My views are my own, and may not necessarily represent those of my employer.

Thanks guys for the positive vote for BP as well :). Having been with Spark for 3 years and have no issues whatsoever which is why wanted to stay with them in the first place.

Just also note BigPipe have online-only support where 2degrees has phone support.

 

Also, if you've got an on-account mobile with 2degrees you get $20/mo off your broadband.

 

Lastly, another recommendation for 2degrees. I moved over from BigPipe due to lack of support almost 2 years ago. Just appeared to me Spark don't care too much about them and are attempting to dissolve them into the Skinny sub-brand.

It's $10 a month, or has that changed recently?
