I'm currently with Voda on a 100/20 fiber plan and the 20 upload is too slow for my needs, I upload lots of photos after sports & events and I need it done asap. 

 

 

 

any ideas?

Get fibre with 2degrees, BigPipe, MyRepublic, Orcon, Slingshot, Spark (in alphabetical order, no preference).

Thats a pretty handy tool, Trust power fibre looks the goods, but you have to sign up for 24 months and switch your power over to them also. $69/month unlimited 100 down 50 up

Trustpowers network performance has been quoted many times as being pretty bad. Also eww to 24mo contract.

If you're fine with no landline (or can setup voip yourself) 

Bigpipe of course! ($20 cred with this link) + Use the promo code UFBSWITCH and you'll get 2 months free! Since you want more than 20 upload you will want the $129 per month Elite plan with 200mbps upload

Using UFBSWITCH for 2 months free + my $20 credit should balance out the $199 early termination fee (You're getting $250 worth of interwebz free). 

 

There is a $49 connection fee, im not sure if the $20 will apply to that or your first bill after 2 months

 


This is hoping Bigpipe is available in your area. Fingers crossed! Pop your address in the checker on the website to check

You should have no issues using your Vodafone HG659 on Bigpipe.


 

Figured i'd take the refferal this time credit since Michaelmurfy just won a TV from his :P

@Yabanize hey now still got to keep my internet bill paid ;) but this time, you're welcome. I am in a giving mood.

 

But yes, if you can BigPipe then go for BigPipe. Trustpower is quite bad with speeds and you really get what you pay for. BigPipe come with no contracts too so you're able to give them a good go and if you really don't like it then move - simple as that :)
