What is the best (fastest but cheap) broadband connection in New Zealand? Is there going to be any change anytime soon?

the cheapest broadband isnt the fastest (and the fastest isnt cheap)

where do you live, whats your budget, and how much data do you expect to use (and what uses will you put it to)

I've looked at quite a few isps in my time and Xnet seems to be the cheapest in terms of getting FLS and decent bandwidth ($39 for FLS with 5 gig). I'm not sure how reliable they are though in terms of consistent speeds or disconnection rates, but i've signed up to them and let you know what it's like.

They are very good in terms of been consistent etc.

Having used them, I had no issues, great ISP

I see the contradiction, the cheapest broadband can't be the fastest (and the fastest isnt cheap)

I live in the residential wellington, new zealand, at the moment i'm using dial up but i'd be willing in the $40 bracket (p/month). I download a reasonable amount, but that may jump and change with the freedom of broadband speeds.
