kiwitrc: Ok got it. One other question, why do you run VFX and 2 Talk, as far as I can tell they are pretty similar?


Good question.

I run 2Talk as it is what I have in a cafe I own.  We have it registered at home so my partner (who runs said cafe) can answer out of hours calls (yes we do get people ringing at 8pm)

I run VFX as some years back I requested a number I really wanted - I was able to get it as a favour (we used to be a VFX dealer), and I use this as my personal home number.  It'd be rude to port off to 2Talk so I have left it on VFX.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Wow, wow, wow.

Well after the initial VoIP hurdle, Vodafone have been surprisingly speedy. 28th (2 days ago) I ordered it, today (30th) I arrive home to no internet, try my new user/pass and whammo. Vodafone Internet is go.

And, I have to add, it lived up to my wild expectation of being able to watch YouTube (at peak-hour no less) without caching.

Very impresed, thanks Vodafone :)

I'm sure the VoIP will work a treat, well it did for 30 minutes until WxC disconnected it by mistake. They tell me it'll be reconnected in the morning though, here's hoping! :)

Thanks for all the responses. To anyone else looking to make the switch, can highly recommend it.

Ben.

  Naked is now $95 per month for me!  Grrrrr.


How much is your mobile bill?  I'm guessing more than mine!  Get a cheap contract and you'll still be saving, even if you never use the phone.

I use VFX over VF with no issues - plugged in on day one and not dropped a beat since.  Added to that, VF has got quicker - started at about 17.4 in December and now usually 19.4.  I moved from Wellington CBD on fibre optic network (non VF) out to 'rural' NZ VF ADSL2+ and it's MUCH quicker...
