JUPITER2K:
 just like to generate discussion as Xnet evolved over the years.  torrent plan was introduced , speed issue has not quite resolved
even till now!

Torrent user think they have more right than PPM, since they pay more Per meg at peak time.

Other has suggested Xnet should be 'normal ' like other ISP. since then it introduce the disconnection fee etc


I do agree that XNET has got more 'normal' with their downtime problems, disconnection fee's, and problems with bandwidth but they are also pioneers in the market still with VOiP and the other advanced features.

I do believe the MB charging is good, and understand unlike other services, the MB charge is the service they make the lowest margin's on of all their services, but the one they get the most complaints about. (From the CEO interview.)

ISP Customers are very demanding and fickle people, some would say addictive :-)




Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

JUPITER2K: Again , what about Xnet need to ne nromal like other ISP ?

Their moto is that they are not normal.  They've been closing the gap with disconnection fees etc., but I sure hope they stick with things like PPM and free VFX features which is really what makes them "not normal".


I thought Free VFX is no more a feature for new sign up? there that's normal !!


I did not mean free VFX, but free features/services on VFX like free voice mail, e-mail notifications, 3-way calling, call forward, etc.  With Telecom you pay for every feature you want, with XNet you you pay for the "advanced" features which were added a few months ago.




You can never have enough Volvos!

Ahh didnt notice that! darn all the good things are going no free static ip and now no free vfx with broadband was just about to change the in-laws over but the extra $11 will probably make them stay on telecom as the advance feature set means little to them.
