1 x Computer Desktop
Minimal Gaming
Maximum Downloading
1 x Xbox Softmodded with Lastest XBMC
Allows Youtube and Internet browsing/downloading etc
Laptops in and out on the wireless just surfing
Good ol Dlink Wireless router (4 Port)
Nothing to special

Average only 50GB a month on the Telecom NZ Go Large Plan
More than enough for my needs
But would definatly want better speeds for more downloads
Thought my average was good untill I saw the averages of the geeks on this site

1. Orcon
2. ADSL - FS/FS 40GB (Orcon Partners plan)
3. 1.5 adults, 3 active machines (bursting up to 8 at times) - 12 VoIP lines (yes, excessive I know, but I don't care.), torrents, usenet, browsing, emails, youtube, and generally breaking the internet.
4. 40 - 150GB, averaging at around 70GB per month.

Comments: Torrents don't go so great for me on Orcon - but usenet is fantastic. I get speeds of around 900-950 KB/sec from giganews.

  1. Xtra
  2. Go Large
  3. 2 adults & 2 teens. Adults just general surfing, internet banking etc. Teens unknown (some Limewire, Youtube & Runescape I believe)
  4. Average a mere 4.2 Gb per month over last 6 months

I've been getting poor speeds (currently 1079kpbs down / 51kpbs up) ever since signing up with Go Large. My original intention (and reason for migrating from Slingshot 256k unlimited) was to use eMule or uTorrent, but I have never managed to set it up (I had expert help when in the UK and used to regularly download Tv & films on eMule - really miss that).

Anyway, looking at what I'm getting with Xtra I'm feeling pretty short-changed so this morning I have signed up for X-net River. I chose X-net on the basis of some pretty good reviews on this site; the CS phone help this morning was certainly encouraging of better things to come.
