Worldnet is a good ISP - I was with them for years on ADSL and they were excellent.  I only changed ISP when I moved to fibre as they did not do fibre in Palmerston North at the time.  Note, however, that they charge an extrordinary $20 per month for a static IP address, which for me pretty much wipes out any advantage I would gain by swapping back to them again (I am on unlimited 1000/500, with VOIP phone).  I am only paying 2Degrees $5 per month for a static IP.

That sounded good right up to the $20/month for a static IP.. 



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