Stryfe:
myfullflavour: Umm yup. I know of two ISPs that dropped their pricing and if you private message us I'm happy to sign you onto our new (July 1) rates.


Mmmm, I know that Voyager and HD have dropped their rates for VDSL2 already, theres not any need for secret squirrel stuff really! I believe that both providers have it available on their website to purchase right now at the reduced rates (starting at $55.00 per month) feel free to check them out.


They make the following claim on their website (emphasis added):

VDSL can achieve download speeds of up to 50Mbps download, and 70Mbps upload speeds. So it’s about 5 x faster for downloads, and 12 times faster for uploads than ADSL2+ (Regular ADSL or ADSL2+ is limited to about 15mbit download speeds, and a meagre 800k upload speed)

Based on my own experience with Voyager, I'd strongly advise anyone considering purchasing services from them to very carefully read their long winded contract to check for inconsistencies with their quoted prices.

LOL!

There will be some edits made at Voyager now I'm sure, XD

Seems a little more reasonable based on real world connections at any rate...
