we are considering switching to Trustpower for power, gas and ISP, since the prices are pretty good. So does any one here have experience with their quality as an ISP using unlimited broadband? We have been with Slingshot so far and are pretty appalled by Slingshots quality. We are talking periods of heavy package loss almost every day (kills online gaming) and a general drop to snail speeds on the weekend.
Our usage is comprised of:
- Lots and lots of streaming, Twitch and the like.
- Downloading lots of software packages (I'm a CS Grad student, I often need to download and install software for my research) + Steam games and updates
- Video chatting: we have our families in Germany, so we like to catch up with our families via video chat once a week
- Gaming, mainly DOTA 2
So we really need unlimited broadband, not unlimited = snail speed when you actually start using it a lot.
Thanks for any input on this!
