I'm in Christchurch thinking of changing to Spark from Bigpipe.

 

Mainly looking at changing since Bigpipe traffic all routes through Auckland which adds unnessecary latency when I VPN into home. Plus I generally VPN in via my iPhone which is on Spark, or another Spark fibre connection (so Spark makes more sense than Bigpipe).

 

With Bigpipe I have a static IP which was just a one-off cost, but Spark change $15 a month which I'm not prepared to pay.

 

DDNS would be sufficient for my needs to allow the incoming VPN, but I wasn't sure if Spark might have started doing CGNAT on residential connections?

With Bigpipe about to be migrate onto the Spark network (beginning 12 June) it might not be worth you moving.  Up to you though :)

 

Note that 12 June is the start date, not the end date for the last customer being migrated.

Oh, I didn't know that was happening. Something to think about then!

@cbrpilot is the any way to get bumped up the queue and get migrated near the start?

It's being done on a link/area basis not per customer
