I love their overcap throttle plan - you can choose if you want it limited to 128k to 2mbit depending upon how much you want to pay at a flat rate.

I also like you can pick up to 2 TB monthly cap. Expensive but not even an option with many providers.

Gahhh! I signed up with Snap last month on the understanding that their Palmerston North UFB service wouldn't be far away, and thinking that there wouldn't be any other realistic competitors in the near future.

Snap's UFB plan is a little better, but if I'd known that InspireNet were going to launch their service so soon, I would have held off switching to Snap and probably gone with InspireNet. Now I'm committed to Snap for the next 23 months...

Awesome! Been hanging out for this. We only have a few options for UFB in palmy and as far as I am concerned Telecom was the only one I would recommend. But they cant supply basic needs over their service yet.
We have quite a few customers on Inspire's wireless service and by all accounts the service is solid so come monday I will be ringing around the people wanting fibre saying sign up now!!

Good work Inspire.

We could do with a few more installs :-)  - Inspire is already the 2nd largest RSP on UFB, by connection volume, in Palmy

their wireless gives you almost no latency back to their services. fantastic if you're running something between two sites that are both on inspire's wireless.

So my first UFB connection got finished yesterday. Still have to reconfigure the router on site so just dialled up directly with the laptop.....



Laptop only has a 100Mb LAN adapter so this is what I expected. Just loving that latency to Inspire's server. This customer has two sites and we will have a VPN between them so when the second site goes live I will do some proper testing with IPerf.

Good work Inspire!! And good work to Chorus too!!
