I am an installer for ruralbroadbandnz ( Bigfrog ), ok, so there is latency involved, at the end of the day, if you can't receive it through your phone line or through line of site wireless and satellite is your only option, then whats the problem?
Yes it is expensive, but so is petrol, and are you able to drive for a month on say $67.44 gst included!
My point being, you either want broadband or you don't .

Was this supposed to be a reply to another thread rather than a new post?

Which of your plans does this relate to?

It sounds like quite reasonable value compared to Farmside's plans.  Let me know some further details, as I know people that may be interested in Bigfrog's offering.
