I live in student accomodation in Wellington, and have been looking at wireless internet options for my room. I have heard a lot of negative things about Whoosh, and Gasp seems to be affordable and pretty decent. I want to be able to play MMOs such as World of Warcraft and use online voice chat services like Ventrilo at the same time, and am wondering if the 256kbps international download would be fast enough to handle that. I've never used wireless internet before, and also am wondering what kind of lag I can expect because of the distance between my computer and the wireless access point.

Hey Dude,

We run a wireless broadband service in northland, and i know one of the guys that works down there with NZ wireless (which i believe is GASP). Realistically you should expect anywhere between 1 and 40ms latency between you and the providers gateway (depending on their loading / set up) but not much more than that, which is comparable to DSL or Cable. So i would say assuming their service is still fixed wireless, its well worth considering.
