If anyone can recommend the cheapest broadband provider in New Zealand I'd really appreciate it. I'm not sure how much usage to get either (???). I mainly ues internet for music downloads, moderate surfing, and trademe auctions. Thanks if you have any recommendations.

O, forgot to mention that I'm looking for a broadband package that's under $30, unlimited use would be great, and if it came with a cook & a cleaner, that would be even better (...kidding, grins).

Sorry, not gonna happen!

You could go for Slingshot's $29.95 256k down, 128k up plan with 25GB of usage.

For 30 bucks, that's probably as close as you're gonna get to unlimited.

SS are okay in most things- they're relatively speedy, have pretty good service and they're reasonably priced.
