Hi all

I've been living in wellington for 3 years in houses where I have had no control over the internet provider (unless wanting to get a separate connection - which I didn't).

I'm shifting back to Christchurch, into my house in Hei hei area soon - and feeling overwhelmed by the selection of providers available now.

I don't game, generally will use approx 80gig a month of data.

Who can recomend a good reliable provider?  I see my house isn't yet ready for fibre, but is for VSDL.  Previously I was with telstra, and the new vodafone plans look ok prices, but would really appreciate thoughts on providers / service and prices.

Thanks heaps

Anna

Another vote for Snap!

They are definitely my provider of choice now.




Ask me about Web Servers, Wordpress and the internet in general.

Third for Snap! or you could go with Telecom. Their VDSL plans a pretty competitive and their network is really stable these days.

Nothing too special about their calling rates I don't think, seems to work OK though (although got an annoyance with Snap Plus at the moment where dialling long 0800 numbers isn't working, you have to truncate the number to 6 digits)

Either Telecom or Snap, Telecom may have better calling options?
