richms: Also, how can you make the claim that you buy more per user than other ISPs when that information is a commercial secret at most places?


It can only be false, no provider discloses how much bandwidth they purchase, and My Republic don't score highly on any independent tests that I have seen to back this up? Also all bandwidth is purchased off M2/Callplus/Slingshot. They have already been told off by the ASA for making false claims.

But to be fair, to prove this claim they should be able to provide some evidence to back it up?

xlinknz: Are Big Pipe/Spark using their size or market position ? - probably.

The Bigpipe and Spark networks are completely separate. Probably the biggest thing they have in common is they both use Global Gateway for upstream connectivity, which some other providers do as well.

Just had a chat to the MD, we know this simply because the providers have told us

They don't disclose info on other ISPs but give us a ranking and we're buying more per user than anyone else

HTH

Get that new internet smell!


Jokes aside, we wouldn't have gone to market if we were not confident in backing it.

It is not a stretch if you consider that we only offer 100Mbps+ Fibre, if we were dimensioning our bandwidth per user on par with the guys who have a massive aDSL base we'd have major network problems!

You're also only offering unlimited plans, the big old ISPs with lots of users on caps / etc won't need nearly as much bandwidth per user.

Nice to hear the networks are separate, my point is Big Pipe have the financial backing to be aggressive with pricing [just as Skinny was a response to 2D]

That said competition is good !
