I'm on Torrent plan and having a speed problem. Should I change to Pay Per Meg's or move to Telecom? : )

Definitely Telecom, if u need reliable speed. Myself, I`m looking at Orcon`s new plans, no contracts there either, and they have a Naked DSL option. Only available in Auckland at the moment I think.

If honest work and justice are not enough - we'll get a lawyer.

Mum is on the pay per meg plan. Its crap compared to my slow-ass slingshot connection. The 128k up isnt responsible for youtube not playing or under 400kbit on international speed tests often. even google reader is a chore to use there vs the instant responses I get on slingshot.

Why don't you change to pay-per-meg, give it a chance....  If it's still crap, then change to Telecom!

Oh, perhaps make sure you ring the helpdesk after you changed too.  Just to make sure you're not still on the torrent pool.

I have been on both the pay per meg plan and the Torrent plan. They are not much different to each other. I would reccomend Orcon as another provider, they were a couple days back voted Best Kiwi ISP.
