Fyx is a consumer/retail a brand of Maxnet (like how Slingshot is a retail brand of Callplus). Maxnet are a internet, hosting and data center provider who have been around forever and generally have a good reputation.

They were more known for focusing on business internet and hosting so they created a separate brand for their retail/consumer ISP to provide some separation.

Maxnet recently was acquired by Vocus Communications who are an up and coming Australasian network company.

Bottom line: Should be good.

bear in mind that;
"$30.30 per month + 30c/GB with phoneline"

means you need to buy a phoneline seperately. it doesnt mean one is included for the price
