Not sure if this is of interest to anyone but Wired Country have apparently expanded their network coverage to Christchurch (pretty much all of the city), TGA (ditto), Palmerston North.

If you are a business customer requiring higher upstream speeds and or lower latency than UBS this may be a consideration. Or if you have no UBS service whatsoever.. :)

Any idea where to get pricing/speed info? just mentions that Compas bought them, and the compas website doesn't have any info at all.
I know Wired Country had good deals compared to adsl when it first came out, but no idea what the plans are like now.

512/256kbps     $25
1024/256kbps   $32
2048/256kbps   $38


200MB   $8
1GB       $15
5GB       $20
10GB     $30
20GB     $40

There are also low latency QoS options:

512/512kbps       $110
1024/1024kbps    $220
2048/1024kbps    $270
3072/1024kbps    $360
4096/1024kbps    $400

Etc, changed focus to bus from res/bus as I think, as they said in a press release when they purchased Wired Country.

Thanks for all the info Fraktul - how did you get the pricing? (employee?).

2048/256k 10GB for $68 isn't tooo bad (but I guess it could be +gst if they are business focused). Add on $10 for iTalk and $78 is kinda close to the $88 I pay for 2048/128k 10GB adsl + telecom line though.
Better upstream, and should be better latency too....

Oh, what are the install/setup costs (if you know them)?    Thanks again!

No I do not work for Wired Country.

Yeah its not too bad consider its business oriented with the contention ratios you get with such and latency you can actually use VoIP for reliably, I would expect that pricing to drop again shortly also.

The install costs are about $150 for the signal test and install I think, no charge if it fails the signal test.
