With all the negative threads directed towards XNet recently, I thought I would make a supporters thread, to show to the maverick and the rest of the team at XNet, that there are still many that support XNet and believe they provide a excellent service.

In particular, the Torrent plan, is excellent value, 75GB for only the price of the speed ($34 if full/128)

I read with concern, as pointed out my Mauricio, that XNet has gotten sick of all the moaning (and rightly so)...
Complaints are always going to happen, and here on the internet it is all that much easier and faceless...
That said I am sure no one wants to loose this communication medium we have here with XNet, and the effort put in by the XNet team, in particular maverick, is nothing short of fantastic.

Great work guys, keep it up. (and please keep us in the loop)

+1 too.  I haven't had much in the way of issues since the torrenters moved away from my access timeslot Laughing

Add me too. I have had no problems with my service with Xnet and I am still recommending them to anyone who is interested in an alternative to having a POTS service. I got my youngest son signed up with them on fusion and have had one or two interested at my work. I know myself how Maverick and the team must feel because when I see whingers carrying on and on like they do it starts putting me off coming into Geekzone forums.

same here as stated in other threads! Xnet was an easy move and I havn't had many troubles (digg mostly wont load?) but otherwise EXTREMELY happy with the service. I love the torrent plan and for me international speed has been a massive increase from xtra.

Im more than happy with xnet and the torrent plan, 75 for free is good at what ever speed.

All isps seem to be having intl speed issues just look at xtra with GO LARGE and what that did.

also isp's do have stuff ups and sh*t happens.... Sometimes more than once.

Overall I give XNET 8/10

Keep it up guys

EXACTLY what I think!

Internet service is not as reliable as we expect it to be and that is just the way of life!

+1 Xnet does a good job for a small ISP, people need to remember that they don't have TelstraClear's budget, and that the torrent plan was made to HELP the international speed problem. Grats Xnet, keep it up Laughing

Please just keep doing what you are doing - XNet suits me just fine. Easy and efficient at a good price; that sounds like great value and feels like it too.
