Niel: Anyone actually getting a result when using the Orcon tool for checking when fiber is coming to your street? And is the 100Mb/50Mb plan for real? I thought that is only for business customers. And then there is the hidden rental fee after the 18 (or 24) month contract which is $10 per month if on a 12 month contract so who knows what it will be after the introductory offer. And no install fee given (or indication). Nice web site, but not as up front as I've experience with XNet. Can't wait for XNet's offerings.


yes, I'm getting a result of

Fibre will be available
But the date for your address hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Am interested to see what the new plans are too - I think they should be announced on this thread first :-)

kyhwana2: Wow. SNAP's supposed new datacaps: $10/15/25/40/70 for 20/60/145/250/550GB

I assume you saw these here? http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=90&topicid=100058&page_no=3#611172
I'm also assuming that the base charge is still $60?

At least you can see a buy now button looking at that link through work I can't even see the plans just the FAQ's at the bottom hehe. I would like some pricing like that though if it's what I read before base $60 + $x for whatever data you want I like the idea of some of those higher options.

For me the biggest issue I have with changing I know what I'm getting with WXC and the quality of the product and it's delivery suit me perfectly I have seen and used other ISP's at friends and families houses for the same as I use my current connection and the speeds were not great at all.

I do not like shaping of any kind and port limiting is ridiculous and limiting to ones freedom to use a service as they see fit.

Soo now here we are was it this week or next Maverick???

I saw your post hagfish and when I tried the site there was a new page design.

Only the front page loaded (none of the links worked). Looked a bit more modern (but did have one large ugly yellowish graphic). 

I tried reloading, got database errors and when I loaded the front page again it was back to the current design.......

Don't be so naive. 

vgamail: 
I'm pretty sure we will not see new plans.  


I repeat my prediction: no new plans in the near future.

You might be right. We were told this time last week that there would be new pricing this week. With 90 minutes left in the business week I'm having my doubts as well...

maverick: almost there guys.... some hold ups with the web pages, ..... frustrating for me as wellYell


Hold ups due to this .... hence the reason we did not want to announce until released to save the type of comments being received from the likes of VGAMail ... so there will be no announcement until they are released sorry. 




Yes I am a employee of WxC (My Profile) ... but I do have my own opinions as well Wink
