I'm looking at the nice new fast network plans that BigPipe has UFB, but the major reason I'd use them is transferring data to and from work, so I was trying to figure out the sort of route/bottlenecks I'd hit between my work's ISP and big pipe.

However I can't find big pipe on the ISP map.  Am I blind, or is it a subset of something else?  (or does the ispmap suck)

Subsidiary of Spark, which I also don't see on there (it doesn't help that search doesn't work).

Edit: Spark is still listed as Xtra - wasn't that name dropped years ago?

I guess BigPipe is underground..... :)

If you want a BigPipe customer to copy some files back and forth send me a PM.  I'm on VDSL that runs about 30/10 so probably not that different to entry level UFB.

I've got a 100/50 trial plan with them, get full speed to anything in NZ. Who's your work with?

Doubt between work and back you will have too much issues (assuming its local)

for the most part bigpipe route over netgate (Global Gateways), Im sure the Folk at bigpipe would gladly run a traceroute for you to a given ip if your concerned however.

Assuming their CSRs are correct, it all goes over GGI as they only have the 1 upstream provider.

i recall mention of another bandwidth provider but i was not 100% on if its actually inuse, thus saying the "most part"

Lightwire.  Which is essentially RuralLink.  I've done a traceRT to one of the bigpipe DNS servers, and it looks like we don't have to leave NZ to get to there so all good. (no idea why I didn't think to do that first up.. I guess I just wanted to look at the map)
