Is anyone on a telecom business broadband plan with a homeline?
Thinking of moving from orcon to the 60gb business plan with a  1.5/gb
It's not cheap but after being moved off the orcon+ network after being cabinetised, peak time anything is terrible compared to before. 

Also, does anyone have any info on the 2wire router the business plan offers?
I tried the live chat but she couldn't find any model number info.

Thanks for the model number, just wanted to compare it to the siemens homehub. How is the international speed at peak time? Getting better speeds/streaming at peak time is the main reason for contemplating a shift.
