Uber Geek

Reading the lead article in the Herald today got me thinking about where to find out which ISPs are providing UFB in my location (yes, the article's on standard broadband).

We regularly get offers from Orcon (we've had UFB available for a quite a few months now) but I am not keen on going with them going after the diabolical service we had when they were our ISP until earlier this year.

So... I'm keen on finding out whether there are any other ISPs currently offering (or soon planning to offer) UFB in this area (Palmerston North).

Cany anyone point me in the direction of a site that would have this information, or even know whether there are any other choices?

Many thanks.

My first suggestion would be to call Inspire.
They're local, locally owned and have won awards for best ISP.
In all my dealings with them, I'd be happy to have them as my ISP

+1. I'm not sure if they have a public offering yet - they have been trialling UFB connections with a few customers - but it can't hurt to give them a call.
