I just moved house, over labour weekend, and rang xnet yesterday to get reconnected. Its being installed today (one day later!) and I'm pretty stoked. 
So, thanks xnet, here's a happy thread for you Smile

All the happy customers got annoyed with the negativity so stopped visiting Geekzone.  I have absolutely no issues browsing the internet and downloading at around 4Mbps, and am a happy customer.

Me too. I have had xnet for a year now and it has been great. Hence why I continued my connection with them. Seems all the non-happy threads have driven all the happy threads away Frown

I've had a naked DSL account since February and am very happy with their service.  I spent 6 months overseas and video chatted back to my partner whenever the (very dodgy) services in the country I was in allowed me too.  Since I've been back I've downloaded all sorts of updates and files and had no problems whatsoever - especially not "browsing the internet".

Good on ya Xnet!

Yes as you have repeatedly said in many posts...you have a perfect Xnet connection....

There are many who do not as evidenced by the MANY of different people who have moaned on these forums and elsewhere.

I rung Xnet yesterday to change my plan, So on a Happy note the phone rang only 3 times then I got answered, So really happy with that......However the guy seemed to have as much personality as a wet fish lolz...he could only say Yep....

I asked him also if many people were changing or ringing up about speed issues and he said yes lots...


nm tho will be with vodafone in 4 days.....

Prime: Yes as you have repeatedly said in many posts...you have a perfect Xnet connection....


Perfect for our needs which includes some downloading and kids playing games.  Others have repeated their frustrations a lot more than I have repeated my satisfaction.

I have complained once that I was not able to access ANZ (AU hosted) due to slow peak time speeds so I do complain when/if I do have a poor connection.

But the happiness is a lot more than the grumpiness.

Sorry to burst the happy thought bubble, but I'm boarding the unhappy thought train after this morning!

At 6am I tried to check the latest news, looked at BBC website - what, it must be down, tried the NY Times - Hmm, its down too?

Tried stuff.co.nz, nice and quickly presented... tried speedtest.net - Bzzzz denied!

It appeared that I could not browse ANY international sites, they all timed out trying. I would get a banner or two then they'd give up. NZ sites came up lickety split.

I must agree with Prime though - I've found the customer service at Xnet fantastic, they answer their phones quickly and call back when they say they will.  Pity about their international speeds though. time to buy some international hamsters to spin the international wheel.
