I need some advice...

I am currently on orcon broadband and my phone with Telecom.

Broadband - 105GB for $125 per Month

Phone - `$50 per Month

I need to change so I can take advantage of some of the new bundled services.

Who should I change to ...?

Telecom ($115 for 120GB and Phone) or Slingshot ($111 for 150GB and Phone)

Is slingshot OK? Speeds etc?

Anyone with any advice would be great. I would really like the bigger data cap but not too sure about slingshot?

I'm on slingshot and it's fine. Nice and fast. We have 5 flatmates and use around 100-200GB a month. My only advise is to get the unlimited plan it's the same price as the 150GB one then you won't have to worry about overage.

If your really price sensitive you could do what I'm doing which is Slingshot Unlimited Naked for $90 then a XNET VFX VOIP Phone line for $10/Month. You do need to buy extra kit though.

Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.
