All these threads seem to be about cable service.

I am struggling to make an ISP decision and have found the least information about PDQ from real-world users.

TC is touted as being the only ISP which isn't suffering from crappy pings to Aussie gaming servers. Anybody care to verify this?

How is the consistency of international speeds?

Appreciate it eXDee.

I am hoping that the lack of problem threads for ADSL is a good thing

I can't verify any gaming details but I CAN say that since i've been on cable my internet life has been forever better for it.  I consistently get max download and upload speeds and am able to run multiple machines online doing multiple..."things"

I have used PDQ (in Auckland - Ponsonby exch) for the past 6 months and have to say it easily beats what I have used before - ihug, xtra etc.

Gehenna I believe they're talking about the copper variant ... I'm also on cable and it rocks, feel sorry for the others he he .. but yeah I heard PDQ has always been good, beside the occassional provisioning issues ... this is a while back, may be it is different now.

Mate I would check out our recent announcement in the thread above.

You can play on our Clearnet game 0servers, and we will not count it towards your usage if you are a consumer TelstraClear broadband customer!
