There are a number of threads on here discussing their offering. It might pay to use the search box if you're after some opinions of the product offering.

Be careful
Not all of their plans come with a public ip address - this means they wont work well for xbox gaming etc.

I would guess that its running on top of slingshot / call plus infrastructure but am not 100% sure so i imagine it will be satisfactory.

I would not expect support to be very good at all. They dont answer their phone very often.
So if you dont need much in terms of support, and are happy to either pay extra to ensure you get a public ip address or dont need one, then thats fine.

There is a difference between a public ip and a static ip.

Thanks Ray

I have got their connection last week. I was trying for VDSL but it is not available in my area. So far its working quite nicely. does not need any ADSL conditionals, like telecom. Will post an update about the speed and consistency soon
