So am thinking about pulling the trigger on the 2Degrees plans - can get 80GB VDSL, free NZ and aussie calls, home line...all for $10+ less than my current WXC account (which only provides 20GB ADSL, only free Auckland calls)....seems to be a pretty basic decision process....just wondering if anyone else lurking here is likely to say tata WXC and hello 2D?

I will start the process of moving email accounts out of the domain - am thinking of just setting up gmail accounts, anyone have any better ideas?

Set up gmail accounts and simply port out.

WXC also have unlimited + VoIP for $99 so sounds like you're on an older plan. Both are good providers (or are at time of writing) :)

Cool thanks for the feedback on breaking the tie with the domain :)

Yeah WXC have the similar plan - but still ends up being more per month (incl the $10 rebate for being a 2D customer) for less (ie Home Phone Plus has unlimited calling to NZ/Aussie)...

Besides yeah as you pointed out we are on an older plan, as we just don't make that much of a dent in data usage, so the basic plan of 80GB should be more than enough on a monthly average (any use over and above that just gets charged out till the cost hits the unlimited price anyhow, so no problems with choosing the lower plan initially). And remaining on the current plan, WXC won't put us on to VDSL, so the 2D solution just seems to have so many more plus points from our angle.

Did the switch last week; thanks for the time WXC, but the lack of ability to change from ADSL to VDSL without signing up to a new $100 per month service just didn't sit well.
So rolled over to 2Degrees and now have faster connection, lower cost, and more phone services bundled up - working like a rockstar.
